Abstract: 

Presented at the 2007 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Two states shared information about how families were involved in the development of their child outcomes measurement systems. Each shared strategies they have used to inform and include families in the process of collecting data using the Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF) process, as well as what they have learned so far from feedback and data about involving families in the process.
