Assessing emotional intelligence equips schools with a deeper understanding of students' emotional competencies, such as self-regulation and empathy. Cultivating emotional intelligence helps students navigate challenges, develop resilience, and form healthier relationships.
The Growth Mindset Survey is designed to help you understand your pupils’ thoughts aout learning and intelligence, whether they have a fixed or growth mindset, and whether they believe abilities can be developed through effort and learning. This survey, tailored for schools, aims to collect valuable insights directly from pupils. By exploring their beliefs and attitudes, teachers can gain a deeper understanding of how pupils approach challenges, view their own abilities, and navigate the learning process.
Research indicates that children as young as 7-8 years old are able reporters of their own mental health. In community setting (particularly schools), self-report measurement supports screening for problems and early intervention. The measure consists of 16 items; 10 of which comprise the emotional difficulties subscale and 6 the behavioural difficulties subscale.
Emotion dysregulation often emerges early in development and is a core feature of many psychological conditions. The Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS) is a well validated and widely used self-report measure for assessing emotion regulation problems among adolescents and adults. The DERS has six subscales with five to eight items each (36 total).
A substantial body of research has shown significant positive associations between scores on the DERS (specifically the total score) and symptoms of a range of psychological disorders, including borderline personality disorder (Gratz et al., 2006), generalized anxiety disorder (Mennin et al., 2002), substance use disorders (Fox et al., 2007; Gratz and Tull, 2010), social anxiety (Rusch et al., 2012), health anxiety (Bardeen and Fergus, 2014), post-traumatic stress disorder (Ehring and Quack, 2010), and bipolar disorder (Becerra et al., 2013; Van Rheenen et al., 2015).
The DERS short form (DERS-SF) instrument maintains the excellent psychometric properties and retains the total and subscale scores of the original measure with half the items.
Based on the Trait Emotional Intelligence Theory, the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire is a significant part of research in emotional intelligence (EI). The questionnaire comprises 30 short statements, two for each of the 15 trait Emotional intelligence (EI) facets, designed to measure global trait EI. Example items include ‘I can control my anger when I want to’, ‘I feel good about myself ’ and ‘I’m good at getting along with my classmates’.
