Title: Social Emotional Assets and Resilience Scales™ (SEARS)
Author: Merrell, K.W.

Description: The Social Emotional Assets and Resilience Scales (SEARS) comprises a cross-informant system for measuring the social-emotional competencies and assets of children and adolescents ages 5 to 18 years across multiple settings and from multiple perspectives – self, parent, and teacher.

Includes separate assessment forms for children (ages 8 to 12 years or Grades 3 to 6) and for adolescents (ages 13 to 18 years or Grades 7 to 12), as well as teacher report forms and parent report forms. The forms may be used for any combination of student, parent, and teacher assessment.

All forms measure common constructs (e.g., self-regulation, responsibility, social competence, empathy), but also include items designed to capture the unique perspective of the rater. Items are phrased as desirable positive characteristics.

Separate short forms (12 items each) are also available. These forms best reflect the global construct of social resiliency measured by the full-length rating forms and require very little time to administer. They are practical for repeated assessment (i.e., progress monitoring) or class- or school-wide screening of students.

The SEARS-SP offers Score Reports, Progress Monitoring Reports, and Integrated Score Reports and can be used with both long and short forms.
