Child Outcomes Measurement Tools & Process

A story of 3 conversions


Conversion #1: COSF


Meet federal reporting requirements

Uses information that IFSP/IEP teams already have

Allows for the use of different tools to measure status at entry and exit

The COSF is NOT an Assessment Instrument

COSF’s 7 point scale

Understanding The COSF’s 7-Point Scale

Ratings of 6 or 7 represent age-expected or age-appropriate functioning with each lower point being progressively more distant from age expectations.


The “B” Question to be answered at Exit

Has the child shown any

new skills or behaviors

related to this outcome

since the child’s last

outcomes summary?

For any child served 6 months or more under Part C and 6 months or more under Part B


Conversion #2: OSEP Progress Categories

  • The OSEP categories describe the types of progress a child can make between entry and exit.

  • Two COSF ratings (entry and exit) are needed to determine which OSEP category describes a child’s progress

How COSF Ratings Determine OSEP Category


How COSF Ratings Determine OSEP Category


Conversion #2: OSEP Progress Categories

  • Did not improve functioning.

  • Improvement but not closer to age level.

  • Improvement and closer to age level.

  • Improvement to age level.

  • Maintained functioning at age level.


Conversion #3: Summary Statements

Summary Statement #1. Of those children who entered or exited the program below age expectations in the Outcome Area, the percent who substantially increased their rate of growth.

Percent = ____(c) + (d)_____ X 100

(a) + (b) + (c) + (d)


Summary Statement 2

The percent of children functioning within age expectations in the Outcome Area by the time they exit the program.

Percent = ____(d) + (e)_____ X 100

(a)+(b)+(c)+(d)+(e)


Eyes on the Prize:

High quality state and local data on outcomes for children and families

  • Improved Programs

  • Improved Outcomes
