Measures

Numerous measures exist to gain a full picture of a student's learning strengths and challenges. Following are examples of measures used to assess this Learner Factor. These measures should be administered and interpreted by experienced professionals.

Emotion Regulation Checklist (ER Checklist) (Shields & Cichetti, 1997): Assesses Emotion regulation through a parent questionnaire

Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (MASC) (March, 2013): Assesses through self-report and parent-report the presence of anxiety for students eight to 19 years old

Children's Anxiety in Math Scale (Jameson, 2013): A 16 item scale where children respond to facial images to rate their anxiety in thinking about and doing math at school
