O1 - Summary Analysis Report

Research conducted on socio-emotional learning demonstrates that significant improvements of socio-emotional skills lead to significant improvements of academic performance. Based on such findings, the I-YES project sought to identify the main socio-emotional skill needs and deficits of the students within the organizations taking part in the project and use these findings to design and implement innovative SEL techniques. The final objective was to reduce school failure through the improvement of classroom behavior and social competence, increases of student's attentiveness, student's deeper commitment to school and increased time devoted to school work.
    
Based on these findings the I-YES project recommended interventions focused on the highlighted socio-emotional skills and that these interventions should help students learn about emotions, and how to identify, use, and control them.
