Eval11 Session 449: Performance Management in Action: A National Measurement System for Early Childhood Outcomes  

11-01-2011 18:34

Presentation slides and handouts for conference session with the following abstract: In response to the federal push for results-based performance indicators, the U.S. Department of Education undertook the development of a national outcomes measurement system for early childhood programs serving children with disabilities. This system, built around state-reported data on child progress for three outcomes, has been well received by key stakeholders. The panel will describe the background for this system, implementation choices and issues faced by state agencies, and how states are planning to use these data to improve programs in addition to submitting them for federal accountability. The panel will share the national findings and lead an audience discussion about their validity and significance. The panel also will discuss lessons about the supports and barriers to building a large scale measurement system such as the need for appropriate assessment approaches for accountability measurement with young children and the importance of procedures for improving data quality.
