Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. States discussed issues and challenges associated with reporting local child outcomes data and comparing these data to state targets. Discussants provided an overview of issues that states have been experiencing and their initial approaches to address these. Examples included: comparing local data to state targets derived from a "fuzzy"€ process or incomplete data, dealing with local reporting for programs with small numbers reporting outcomes data when children received services from more than one local program/district, and sharing messages about local data with a variety of stakeholders. Session attendees participated through facilitated discussion and Turning Point technology.
