Abstract: 

Presented at the 2008 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

In this session, three states shared the strategies they are implementing to assure the quality of the child outcomes data they have been collecting using the Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF), including a review of forms by state staff, a process for reviewing aggregate data by local programs/LEAs, a suggested process for locals to review their own forms, and a survey of providers. A facilitated discussion provided plenty of opportunity for exploring the details of implementing quality assurance strategies and sharing among participants.
