Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. Participants were involved in a moderated conversation featuring national, state, and family perspectives, with an emphasis on the process states have used in cross-walking federal reporting requirements across early childhood agencies (e.g., Head Start reporting framework, child care, and OSEP three child outcomes). Participants shared  what they are doing, explored what is needed, and discovered how to better connect early learning standards with other work in their state.

The State of State Pre-Kindergarten Standards

Type: 
Paper/Report
Author/Presenter: 

Newman, S.B. and Roskos, K.

Year: 
2005
Abstract: 

This article outlines an argument for early childhood learning standards and benchmarks, such as those required by Good Start Grow Smart and the Child Care Development Grant, to be grounded in research, and reflect age-appropriate outcomes for young children. Research on the predictors of early literacy and mathematical achievement are presented, and recommendations from organizations responsible for studying the quality of K-12 standards are summarized. The current benchmarks and standards of state systems are then examined, and recommendations are made based on the research reviewed.

Year: 
2005
Abstract: 

Early learning standards collected from 36 states were analyzed to determine to what extent they addressed various dimensions, (i.e., cognition and general knowledge, language and communication, social emotional development, and approaches to learning) and indicators of child development and early learning. Findings indicate that standards vary greatly across states, as does the degree to which these standards address important elements of learning and development. Recommendations for future research are discussed.
