Developing a Framework to Build High Quality Part C and Section 619 Systems

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Anne Lucas (ECTA, WRRC), Christina Kasprzak (ECTA, ECO, DaSy), Katy McCullough (ECTA, MSRRC)

Year: 
2013
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. Does my state have a high quality system? How would I know? And what steps would we take to improve the system? In this session, participants learned about the system framework the ECTA Center is developing to support states in analyzing the capacity of their current Part C and Section 619 systems and building overall quality systems that support implementation of effective practices and ultimately child and family outcomes.

Planful Changes: Using Self-Assessments to Improve Child and Family Outcome Measurement Systems

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Lauren Barton (DaSy, ECO), Melissa Raspa (ECO)

Year: 
2013
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. Developed by the ECO Center and several partner states, two self-assessments provide frameworks for states to examine and improve their systems for measuring child outcomes and family outcomes and experiences. The session described the self-assessments and how states are using them for planning and systems improvement. The session targeted those who are not familiar with the frameworks, but all were welcome to learn about the content and uses of these resources.

Using the Child Outcomes Measurement System (COMS) Self-Assessment Tool for State Planning and Action

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Lauren Barton, Kathy Hebbeler, and Ruth Littlefield 

Year: 
2011
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. This session was intended to assist states in using the COMS Self-Assessment Tool, a tool developed as a resource for states to guide outcomes measurement systems improvement activities. New Hampshire described the process they followed to help identify their planning priorities and activities to improve their measurement system. Session participants conducted activities in small groups to explore potential ways of using the tool and reflected on how the tool might be used in their states to improve how data are collected and used.

The ECO Outcomes Measurement System Framework and its Application in States

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Janna Gregory (ME Part C and 619), Kathy Hebbeler (ECO at SRI), and Jim Lesko (DE 619)

Year: 
2010
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2010 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

This plenary highlighted an outcomes measurement system framework developed by ECO in collaboration with seven partner States. The framework includes a scale designed to be used by State agencies to assess progress toward full implementation of a Child Outcomes Measurement System (COMS) for programs serving young children with delays and disabilities. Delaware and Maine shared their experiences implementing this measurement framework within their child outcomes system and the lessons learned therein.

The Child and Family Outcomes Measurement Frameworks

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Kathy Hebbeler and Donna Spiker (ECO at SRI)

Year: 
2012
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2012 Measuring and Improving Child and Family Outcomes Conference. Developed by the ECO Center and several partner states, the measurement frameworks provide a structure, including quality indicators, for a high quality state level measurement system that includes collecting valid data and using the information for program improvement at the local level. The frameworks and the corresponding self-assessments will be described along with various ways states can use them to plan and improve how they are measuring child and family outcomes. This session is targeted to those who are not familiar with the frameworks but all are welcome to join us for a discussion about how states can use the frameworks and the self-assessments.
