The Parenting Skills Ladder (PSL) is a self-reporting instrument that was created at Oregon State University to measure parenting education programs. The instrument is designed to be taken at the end of a program and asks parents to rate their current and previous knowledge and practices. The PSL is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic.
