with participants uses HAVE YOU BEEN WONDERING How well do we measure the experiences of families in our program or state? What else do we need to do with our family outcomes data? How do we know if we are heading in the right direction? How can we prioritize improvements to our family outcomes measurement system? INTRODUCING

FAMILY EXPERIENCES AND OUTCOMES MEASUREMENT SYSTEM PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT Followed and parallels the Child Outcomes Measurement Framework & Self-assessment ECO workgroup Partner state workgroup Connecticut Illinois Minnesota Texas Ongoing revisions Your feedback!

TWO CORE ASPECTS Framework Set of components and quality indicators Provides the structure for the self-assessment Self-assessment Scale that provides criteria for levels of implementation within each quality indicator Ratings are assigned based on level of implementation within each indicator PURPOSE OF THE FAMILY FRAMEWORK Provide a common language for ECO and other TA providers to use in discussing family outcomes measurement systems with states.

Identify key components of a system for measuring family experiences. Provide an organizing structure for categorizing resources and state examples related to implementation or improvements to the measurement system. Serve as the foundation for the self- assessment ORGANIZATION Framework Component Quality Indicator Element Element Quality Indicator Element Element

Element FRAMEWORK COMPONENTS EXAMPLE COMPONENT: PURPOSE Quality Indicator: The state has articulated purpose(s) of the family experiences and outcomes measurement system Elements: a) Stakeholders are involved in development of the purpose(s). b) Purpose includes examining multiple aspects of families experiences with the program and their outcomes (e.g., helpfulness of early intervention, family outcomes, family-centered services) c) Statement is easily accessible to local administrators, providers, families and general public. d) Families receiving services are fully informed of purposes of collecting data on family experiences and outcomes.

e) Purpose includes meeting reporting requirements and providing ongoing information for data-based decision-making for program improvement. f) Written statement addresses why data are being collected and how data will be used. Statement specifies who will use the data and for what purposes. EXAMPLE COMPONENT: USING DATA Quality Indicator: State agency makes regular use of what it is learning from families to improve programs Elements include: State regularly implements a stakeholder process that includes families for considering the implications of family experiences and outcomes and other data State uses data to develop a comprehensive plan for program

improvement. Quality Indicator: Local programs make regular use of what they are learning from families to improve programs Elements include: Local programs regularly implement a stakeholder process that includes families for considering the implications of family experiences and outcomes data and other data. Local programs implement and evaluate program improvement activities on a regular cycle. Our Families PURPOSE OF THE SELFASSESSMENT Provide guidance to states on what constitutes a high quality system for measurement of family experiences and outcomes.

Evaluate ones current family experiences and outcomes system Assist states in setting priorities for improvements in their measurement system Provide information to assist states in advocating for resources for systems development SELF-ASSESSMENT PROCESS: QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER Who will participate in the assessment process? What do you mean by Family Experiences and Outcomes Measurement? What is the purpose of the self assessment for your program? Do you want to complete the entire measure? Focus on one or two areas you are concerned

about? What will happen with the results of your assessment? SAMPLE RATING PAGE QUALITY INDICATOR RATINGS Implementation of Elements None of the elements are yet in process Quality Indicator Rating 1 Some of the elements are in process

/ Purpose 1. State has articulated purposes(s) of the family experiences and outcomes measurement system. Data Collection and Transmission 2. Data collection procedures are carried out efficiently and effectively. 3. Providers, supervisors, and others involved in data collection have the required knowledge, skills, and commitment. 4. States method for entering, transmitting, and storing data is effective and efficient. Analysis 5. State identifies accountability and program improvement questions related to family experiences and outcomes. 6. Local programs identify accountability and program improvement questions related to family experiences and outcomes.

10. State agency interprets, reports, and communicates information related to family experiences and outcomes. 11. Local programs interpret, report, and communicate information related to family outcomes. Using Data 12. State agency makes regular use of what it is learning from families to improve programs. 13. Local programs make regular use of what they are learning from families to improve programs. Evaluation 14. State evaluates its family experiences and outcomes measurement system regularly. Cross-system Coordination 15. Part C and 619 coordinate family experiences and outcomes measurement. 16. Family experiences and outcomes measurement is integrated across early childhood (EC) programs statewide.

HOWS IT GOING? DISCUSSION QUESTIONS What uses can you see for the tool in your state or program? How can families be involved in the selfassessment process? What additional resources might be useful? Other ideas for ECO?
