Proactively Identify and Address Social & Emotional Barriers to Learning
Effective learning starts with the social and emotional well-being of students. PASS helps identify fragile learners who are held back by factors such as a lack of confidence, motivation, or connection to school. By uncovering how students feel about themselves and school, educators can give them the support they need to thrive.

Using PASS Data & Reports
PASS automatically generates multi-level reports that are easy to read using a clear traffic light system.
Reports provide insights into nine factors, allowing schools to clearly identify barriers to learning such as disengagement, low self-worth, bullying, and the risk of absenteeism.
Demographic data allows schools to ensure equity in education at every stage of the process.
PASS data allows schools to start the conversation that will ultimately improve student confidence, behavior, attendance, and achievement, as aligned to ESSA's non-academic standards.
"PASS was the first SEL assessment we reviewed for district-wide use in grades K through 12. Still, we spent the better part of a year looking at several highly regarded SEL products only to return to PASS as our first choice. We determined that PASS is the most user-friendly while providing the assessment information in several key areas and providing an abundance of resources. We loved that students complete the self-assessment, and teachers are provided color code data following the assessments."

Director of Student Programs at Jenks Public Schools in Oklahoma
"By using [...] early indicator data, it is possible to identify when students are beginning to fall off track, providing time to intervene and alter their trajectory through school and beyond.
Schools are now exploring how they can create an ethos and culture that support wellbeing in their students to support the prevention of mental health issues developing. This is where PASS becomes invaluable."
Dr. Robert Balfanz, Johns Hopkins University
Equipped with PASS data, schools have the power to proactively address and prevent social and emotional barriers to learning at both a school-wide and individual level. The insights provided by the PASS data can be used to inform a school's MTSS plan and assess the effectiveness of a school’s existing SEL programs.
The PASS Online Intervention Guide offers over 130 unique interventions directly linked to the nine PASS factors. The research-backed strategies empower administrators and teachers to help students develop the non-academic skills they need to succeed in school, work, and life.
