  Article:   THE SCHOOL SUCCESS PROFILE: ASSESSING THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT AND THE INDIVIDUAL ADAPTATION OF MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.

  Abstract:  This article provides an overview of the School Success Profile (SSP), which is a strengths-based assessment tool for informing, monitoring, and evaluating interventions to promote school success among middle and high school students. Framed and informed by the Eco-Interactional Development (EID) model of school success, the SSP assesses students within the context of their broader social environment and yields individual and summary group student profiles from the data, informing both micro- and macro-level practice interventions. The SSP is designed to augment other ways of knowing about students and their presenting situations. The history and development of the SSP are reviewed, as well as the 2008 version of the SSP that allows users to design their own survey. Information about the reliability and validity of the SSP are offered. Use of the SSP has expanded from the United States to other countries, including Romania and Portugal.
