for an international research study to measure students’ social and emotional skills  
The Houston Education Research Consortium is a partnership between Rice University and Houston-area school districts that produces research to inform decision making. The group will represent the United States in an international survey coordinated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development to measure students’ skills at ages 10 and 15. The Study on Social and Emotional Skills will demonstrate the feasibility of producing valid, reliable, and comparable information on such skills across countries and settings; additionally, it will provide analyses that can improve education and support services.
