BAS SEL Field Study Executive Summary
This document is the Executive Summary of the Field Study of Reliability and Validity done on SEL. Field testing was conducted with 284 students enrolled in a socioeconomically, ethnically, and linguistically diverse group of seven schools from five geographic regions across the U.S. Determinations of each school’s socioeconomic status were made using federal guidelines for categorizing low-, middle-, and high SES schools. Students thus represented a cross-section of the major regions of the U.S., diverse socioeconomic levels and language backgrounds, and participated in programs for Spanish literacy instruction.
