What is the Screening and Assessment Library?
The Screening and Assessment Library is one of the SHAPE System’s popular resources available to schools and districts with a SHAPE account.
This resource is a searchable library of free or low-cost screening and assessment measures related to school mental health, including academic, school climate, and social, emotional, and behavioral focus areas. Search filters allow you to narrow your results by focus area, assessment purpose, student age, language, reporter and cost.
Your search will populate with all of the measures that fit your selected criteria. Then, select the measure name to access a downloadable PDF, which includes a one-page summary, links directly to the measure, and includes instructions on administration, scoring, and interpretation.
The library was developed through a comprehensive review of publicly available or low-cost measures conducted by the National Center for School Mental Health. Each measure was coded according to information available in the public domain using a standardized rubric developed using a team approach.
