CAWS ™

The Children and Adolescent Wellness Scale assesses children’s social emotional competencies across 10 psychological domain areas.  Using the web-based application, schools can set up universal screening windows to assess students’ CAWS SEL core competencies by Teachers, Parents and Students.  

• Determine a student’s SEL strengths and areas needing support. 

• Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of SEL curricula.

Areas Assessed

The CAWS SEL core competencies include.

Adaptability

Adaptability reflects a person’s ability to negotiate difficult situations as well as their preparedness for change, flexibility and acceptance.

Connectedness

Connectedness assesses a person’s perceptions of belonging and acceptance in their peer groups, family, and the community and highlights the importance of interpersonal relationships and positive psychological benefits of healthy relationships.

Conscientiousness

Conscientiousness relates to a person’s concern over personal choices and the assumption of responsibility for one’s actions.

Emotional Self-Regulation

Emotional Self-Regulation is a critical aspect of an individual’s functioning, contributing to success in many domains of behavior, particularly social competence. The inability to control one’s emotions has been associated with a host of impulse control disorders, and is seen as a major contributor to social conflicts.

Empathy

Empathy is defined as “an affective response that stems from the apprehension or comprehension of another’s emotional state or condition, and which is identical or very similar to what the other person is feeling or would be expected to feel” (Eisenberg, 2003).

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings, sensations, paying attention to our thoughts and feelings of the moment with no judgement of right or wrong.

Optimism

Optimism refers to hope and expectancies for the future, and relates closely to our personal explanations for events that occur in our daily lives and has consistently been linked to good mood, perseverance, achievement, and physical health.

Self-Efficacy

Self-Efficacy refers to what we believe we can do, our belief that we are capable of producing our desired goals with our own actions.

Social Competence

Social Competence is a broad construct that incorporates affective, cognitive, and behavioral skills that combine to determine success in interpersonal relationships. Social competence is widely accepted as an important predictor of resilience in children, as well as academic achievement.
