Measuring and Strengthening Perseverance Webinar

Presenters Dr. Pekel and Dr. Scales

Join us for Measuring and Strengthening Perseverance: The Challenges and Opportunities of Working on Noncognitive Skills, a no-cost webinar presented by Kent Pekel, Ed.D., President and CEO at Search Institute, and Peter C. Scales, Ph.D., Senior Fellow, on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 12PM - 1PM, CDT.

Building on 25 years of research on positive youth development, Search Institute's new work focuses on developmental relationships and other factors that help young people strive to be their best in school and life. That research has led to the creation of a new survey that measures key components of perseverance and related noncognitive skills.

During this webinar, Dr. Kent Pekel and Dr. Peter C. Scales will provide an overview of Search Institute's new Perseverance Survey, share lessons that have been learned through the ongoing development of the tool, and describe the role that the survey will play in the Perseverance Process.

The Perseverance Process is a new resource that Search Institute plans to develop in partnership with a group of schools and out-of-school time programs starting in fall 2014.
