Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. This session was intended to assist states in using the COMS Self-Assessment Tool, a tool developed as a resource for states to guide outcomes measurement systems improvement activities. New Hampshire described the process they followed to help identify their planning priorities and activities to improve their measurement system. Session participants conducted activities in small groups to explore potential ways of using the tool and reflected on how the tool might be used in their states to improve how data are collected and used.
