Abstract: 

In 2005, ECO created the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process as a way for states to summarize data on children for federal reporting purposes. States use the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) Form to document children's functioning in three outcome areas. Starting in 2011, the ECO Center began using the term "Child Outcomes Summary <em>Process</em>" (rather than the Child Outcomes Summary Form or COSF) to emphasize that this measurement approach is a team process, not just a form. Our website still reflects both terms (COSF and COS) as we are currently revising our web pages and materials to reflect the change to the COS process.
