Abstract: 

The decision tree is a series of questions about the extent to which a child exhibits age-appropriate skills and behaviors in each outcome area. Responses guide the user to a specific rating category on the 7-point scale.Two version are available; the decision tree without numbers was developed for programs wishing to de-emphasize the numbers on the scale, particularly when families are directly involved in the team discussion that describes their child's level of functioning. http://projects.fpg.unc.edu/~eco/pages/outcomes.cfm#COSFormandInstructions

Crosswalks

Type: 
ECO Tools
Abstract: 

In the process of working with states on outcome development and measurement approaches, the ECO Center cross-referenced the functional skills assessed by various published instruments with the three child outcomes required by OSEP for Part B/619 and Part C programs, to assess the degree to which these instruments measure the required outcomes. Crosswalks were generated for instruments based on the frequency of informal requests from states. Priority was also given to instruments that states identified for outcomes measurement in the State Performance Plans submitted to the Office of Special Education Programs in 2005. These crosswalks are presented as a service to the field.

Child Outcomes Summary Calculators

Abstract: 

These Excel files can be used (or adapted for use by someone who knows Excel) with large data sets of COS ratings. They use summary form ratings data to generate OSEP progress category information on child outcomes (i.e., the data that must be submitted to OSEP every February), summary statement percentages, charts showing entry and exit COS ratings, descriptive information on "a" and "e" progress categories across all three outcomes, and some basic descriptive information about the data. There is also a guidance document for information about warning messages when opening the file, how to enter data and add data rows and columns to the file, and which describes changes between current and previous versions of the calculator. 

Child Outcomes Summary (COS) Forms

Abstract: 

In 2005, ECO created the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process as a way for states to summarize data on children for federal reporting purposes. States use the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) Form to document children's functioning in three outcome areas. Starting in 2011, the ECO Center began using the term "Child Outcomes Summary <em>Process</em>" (rather than the Child Outcomes Summary Form or COSF) to emphasize that this measurement approach is a team process, not just a form. Our website still reflects both terms (COSF and COS) as we are currently revising our web pages and materials to reflect the change to the COS process.
