The Syria International Social and Emotional Learning Assessment (ISELA) baseline study set out to assess the levels of socio-emotional development of children ages 6 to 12 in five Injaz-supported child centers. The ISELA assessment addresses two key research questions: 1. What socio-emotional competencies do children between the ages of 6 and 12 demonstrate in the four ISELA domains: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationships? 2. What contextual factors are associated with children’s socio-emotional development? The study will highlight children’s strengths and areas for improvement, and assess the SEL learning environment. The results will be used to develop age-appropriate and context-relevant psychosocial interventions for children in Injaz’s centers.
