The Institute of Education Sciences at the U.S. Department of Education has released A Review of Instruments for Measuring Social and Emotional Learning.... The review is designed to help state and local education agencies find assessments that measure secondary students' social-emotional skills, specifically in the areas of collaboration, perseverance, and self-regulated learning, and to help readers interpret the information about reliability and validity for each assessment.
A total of 16 assessments met the following inclusion criteria for the review: they had to be publicly available, had to have been administered to secondary students in the U.S., and had to have undergone validation study in 1994 or after. Tables in the review detail the format of instruments by emotional skill, and the reliability and type of validity information for each assessment. Authors conclude with implications for use of each type of instrument.
