The PLSSE is divided into four domains: context for sex education, professional disposition, best practices, and key content areas. Each domain includes indicators related to educator’s knowledge of content, familiarity with teaching methods, and understanding of best practices. School administrators and educators can use the PLSSE to determine areas where teachers are most proficient and those in which additional professional development may be needed. The Assessment Tool is designed to for educators to rate their own capability and comfort. The tool can be given to current educators to complete or could be used to develop questions for determining qualifications of future educators. The brief provides a concise overview of the PLSSE, a list of organizations involved in their development, and some ideas for ways they might be used.
