Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. Presenters implementing the pyramid model for social-emotional development discussed and provided examples of the tools they selected for measuring social-emotional outcomes, the data those tools generate, and how they are using the data for decision making at the child, practitioner, classroom, program, state, and national levels. This session presented how different combinations of assessment data can inform different decisions for improvement at all levels. Participants also joined in a discussion of how this framework for multi-level data collection and use can generalize to other child outcomes and State Performance Plan indicators.
