Casey Life Skills Assessment
What is the Ansell-Casey Life Skills Assessment?
The Ansell- Casey Life Skills Assessment, also referred to as Casey Life Skills (CLS), is a suite of comprehensive online assessments, learning plans, and learning resources that can be utilized for free to help engage young people gain the life skills they need to successfully transition into adulthood. The tools are strengths-based and were built and refined with user input and research.
What are the options for managing the registration process for multiple staff/multiple Providers?
Organizations create individual accounts. Organization/Agency leaders have the option of creating logins to access information about these Providers and the youth they are serving.
What is the role of a Provider’s designated CLS site administrators?
There are 3 centralized tasks for a Provider’s administrators.
1.) Administrators can invite caseworkers who work at their agency to create logins in order to begin adding youth to the account and administering assessments.
2.)They can also deactivate caseworker accounts when those staff leave the agency.
3.)And they will receive requests via email from users to create logins. In this instance, it is important that administrators understand that by allowing those case workers to create logins they will have access to confidential information. Are these known case workers to the administrator? When the administrator gives permission, a confidentiality disclaimer will automatically appear as a reminder of this important action.
