Abstract: 

Presented at the 2007 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Presenters discussed strategies and systems for assuring quality assessment data through training and TA, as well as data validation. Training and TA strategies include, for example, a consistent message to personnel through well-developed training modules and standards for trainers delivering professional development. For data validation, strategies include mechanisms in the data system to identify missing data and contradictory responses.
