In line with the Singapore Ministry of Education’s efforts to implement a student-centred, values-based holistic education, it has put out a tender for vendors to develop an on-line tool to for students’ self-reporting of their socio-emotional competencies. The five areas of socio-emotional competencies to be measured are self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship management and responsible decision-making. Teachers who were interviewed said that in order for the tool to be useful, the questions needed to be well-researched in order for them to yield meaningful findings about the child.
