Product Details

The SSIS Performance Screening Guide fills the need for a time-efficient, technically sound tool for classwide screening of key social, motivational, and academic skills. For use with students in preschool through high school, this universal screening instrument helps assess and document the performance level of all students, not just those in greatest need of intervention.

The SSIS Performance Screening Guide focuses on observable behaviors in four skill areas:

  • Prosocial Behaviors
  • Motivation to Learn
  • Reading Skills
  • Math Skills

Educators identify the level of performance for the student using criterion-referenced performance continua for each of these areas to measure the student’s skills against grade-level expectations.

For intervention materials, see the SSIS Classwide Intervention Program, a companion program to the SSIS Performance Screening Guide. Used together, these tools offer a coordinated system for improving social skills in a classroom or group setting.
