You went into education to help kids. But so many kids are at-risk – they are disengaged at school, stressed at home, susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse, and may even be a threat to themselves or others. But sometimes you don’t know who these kids are until damage is done – and even then, you don’t know how to focus the limited resources you have to help them.
What you need is a way to find, target, and intervene with these kids early on, to change the course of their lives…..
Now there’s a tool that can do just that.
Terrace Metrics is a quick, comprehensive way to assess the mental health of students from grade 3 to adult.
Terrace Metrics is the only test that measures BOTH risk factors (depression, anxiety, victimization, ostracism) AND protective factors (resiliency, grit, hope).
Measuring both is critical – the presence of even one risk indicator reduces academic performance 20%, increases the chance of drop out, and drives poor outcomes, including early death. But one protective factor can cut those risks by half.
With Terrace Metrics, your school system can find where kids are on the risk spectrum, from At-Risk to Optimal. You can then target resources – bringing help to the ones that need it, and making sure Optimal kids are supported so they can be high achievers.
Terrace Metrics has mapped out academic outcomes based on 30,000 kids from grade 3-12. Our algorithms clean and code the data, analyze it, then transmit it in within one hour for a quick response at the student level. We bring empirically based support suggestions and if necessary intervention strategies. Results are automatically scaled up to school and district levels.
