What the Expert Says:

School psychologists look at life skills from a very early age.  There are companies that provide assessment tools, research and data regarding life school development.

I am adding one of the company websites below for assessment tools.
Also, I am adding the National Association for School Psychologists online help website.

Good luck.  It sounds like very important and intersting work that you are providing.

If you haven't already, I would recommend that you visit the Education.com Life Skills resource center: http://www.education.com/topic/life-skills/

Another section of the site that may interest you is the Child and Adolescent Development resource center:
http://www.education.com/topic/child-adolescent-development/

One article that may be particularly relevant for your study: "Developmental Trends: Accomplishments and Diversity at Different Age Levels" (an excerpt from the book, "Child Development and Education," by T. M McDevitt & J. E. Ormrod, 2007)...
