Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Lauren Barton, Donna Spiker, Cornelia Taylor 

Year: 
2011
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. This session presented a brief update on the status of ENHANCE, a research project investigating the validity of data from the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process and identifying factors related to quality data. Presenters shared preliminary findings from the analysis of state data being conducted as part of ENHANCE. Content focused on techniques being used in the study for interpreting patterns to understand the validity of the data. Materials were provided to support states in analyzing the quality, consistency, and meaning of their own COS data.
