Outcome data is an added data requirement
Professional organizations for EC personnel include and describe ongoing assessment in their recommended practices and position statements. For example:
State Level: By comparing data across programs, states can identify effective programs
Program Level: Local agencies can examine intervention services, settings and practices
Teachers and other service providers can use data
Individual child outcomes data can be used to identify children needing additional help and communicate child progress to parents.
States must implement an accountability system that produces quality for reporting purposes and for program improvement at the federal, state, and local levels.
The ultimate goal is to have quality policies and practices in place, providing high quality services for young children and their families, resulting in the best possible outcomes for children and families.
