Abstract: 

Presented at the 2010 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

The introductory workshop gave examples of different formats for looking at data, and participants discussed what patterns would be expected in high quality data. A representative from New York described her state'€™s experiences with analyzing patterns in their child outcomes data as a step in quality assurance and share examples from their findings. Participants worked with sample data in small groups to look for patterns, identify red flags, and determined whether additional analysis or quality assurance activities might be appropriate.
