    This guide summarizes information about tools that programs can use to measure youth progress in “social-emotional” or “21st century skills”. The goal is to help practitioners choose conceptually grounded and psychometrically strong measures of important skills and dispositions that cut across academic achievement and other distal youth outcomes like risk behavior, mental health and employment.
