Abstract: 

Presented at the 2010 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Many States use online assessment systems to collect, review, and analyze their child outcomes data. In this session, Nebraska and Colorado described methods of monitoring data quality through automatically generated reports and raw data available through the assessment systems. Both States reviewed how these strategies can be used at each level in the hierarchy (child, teacher, program, State), whether through random spot checks or more targeted, individualized checks.

Author/Presenter: 

Baron Holmes, Susan Illgen, Phil Koshkin, and Philip Sirinides

Year: 
2011
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. A three state panel engaged participants in discussion and shared lessons learned about their experiences in collecting, analyzing, and linking early childhood data with public school data. Maryland, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina are three premier states whose processes for ensuring data collected birth to school age are linked to important K-12 and post-secondary outcomes. The objectives of the session were: (1) experience discourse among colleagues about the importance of quality early childhood data collection and linkage to K-12, including exemplary uses of early childhood data among children with disabilities; (2) hear from state experts about their state early childhood data systems and how they have used data to impact program, funding, and training decisions; and (3) develop an awareness about how different approaches for linking agency data across programs can improve child outcomes and lead to changed local and state policy.
