The National Academies of Sciences has just published one of their typically massive reports and this one, as they usually do, has some nuggets if you’re willing to wade through it all.

The report is called “Supporting Students’ College Success: The Role of Assessment of Interpersonal and Intrapersonal Competencies,” but much – if not all – of it also has relevance to K-12 schools. The report is available for free download.

Science Daily has nice, short, and sweet summary of the report. Here’s an excerpt:

I’m adding this info to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources.
