All ASSC School Climate Assessment Instruments (SCAI) have been approved by the US Department of Education, Office of Safe and Supportive Schools.
ASSC provides the School Climate Assessment Instruments (SCAI) in two primary ways.
- First, we license the use of the instruments to schools or individuals for their use. In those cases, we are not directly involved with the administration of the surveys.
- Second, the more popular and efficient option is for schools to administer the SCAI using our online survey system. In this case, we provide the client the links and instructions along with tech support and answer any questions that you have. After the surveys have been completed, we provide reports that are generated from the data collected online. And we can custom create reports based on the client's needs, budget and desires. Reports range from simple displays of the item, dimension and school means by group, to more involved reports that include narrative analysis, implications and recommendations for improvement. There is no limit to the number of surveys that can be processed.
(*) SCAI v5.0 includes a special emphasis on parent involvement (versions available for parents, teachers and staff and students).
All surveys are available in Spanish Language versions.
An additional scale is available measuring climate for students with special needs. This scale can be included to any online administration.
