Setting Targets for Child Outcomes

Type: 
Paper/Report
Author/Presenter: 

Hebbeler, K. and Kahn, L

Year: 
2008
Abstract: 

States must set targets for each of the Early Childhood Outcome Indicators, C3 and B7, once their baseline is established in the SPP/APR due 2010. OSEP received comments from states suggesting that three sets of five targets (each set totaling 100%) is excessive, and that OSEP should reduce the number of targets for the SPP/APR indicators. The purpose of this paper is to provide background as to the work that has been done to date regarding this issue, as well as summarize possible options for setting targets for OSEP reporting and making recommendations.

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.
