mySAEBRS – Students in grades 3rd-12th complete the mySAEBRS student screener two times each school year (August and February). The mySAEBRS student screener is a 20-item rating scale that students self-report their well-being in the areas of Social Behavior, Academic Behavior, and Emotional Behavior. The results from the screener are utilized to ensure student needs are being met.
The mySAEBRS student screener is quick to administer. It takes approximately one to three minutes for students to complete. Some examples of the questions students see are below:
- I am ready for class (never, sometimes, often, almost always)
- I get along with my peers (never, sometimes, often, almost always)
- I am joyful (never, sometimes, often, almost always)
Educators utilize the data from the SAEBRS and mySAEBRS screeners to identify the most appropriate instructional and classroom supports for all students. Universal screening tools can show patterns among larger groups of students and inform planning for whole class practices and intervention.
