Abstract: 

States must set targets on SPP/APR indicators and annually measure state performance compared to the targets. In the APR submitted February 2010, states set targets for the first time for child progress data. The summary statements for each of the three outcomes for Part C and 619 are the following:  Summary Statement 1: Of those children who entered the program below age expectations in each Outcome, the percent who substantially increased their rate of growth by the time they exited the program. Summary Statement 2: The percent of children who were functioning within age expectations in each Outcome by the time they exited the program.

Abstract: 

The ECO Center has created maps to illustrate states' approaches to meeting the OSEP reporting requirement on child outcomes. The maps are based on information reported by states in their annual APR reports, and are continuously updated as new information is submitted. Also on this page are the ECO reviews of the states' SPP/APR submissions for OSEP. For Part C, ECO reviews indicators C3 (child outcomes) and C4 (family outcomes). For Part B, ECO reviews indicator B7 (child outcomes).

Abstract: 

The ECO Center, in partnership with a variety of states, has facilitated the development of two frameworks for states to use in building and strengthening their early childhood outcome measurement systems. The purpose of these tools is to help states identify the necessary components of a high-quality measurement system for child and family outcomes and, where options exist, to assist states in making informed decisions as to which option is most effective and best suited to the state's context.

Both the child and family frameworks and self-assessments follow similar structures. The self-assessment has seven key components: purpose of the outcomes measurement system, data collection and transmission, data analysis, reporting, using data, evaluation and cross-system coordination. The tools reflect a knowledge base of what states need to have in place to have effective child and family outcomes measurement systems, and allow a state to track its own progress toward a fully functional, high quality outcomes measurement system.
