Early Language and Literacy Classroom Observation (ELLCO) Study Results



Stratified random sample of PSE classrooms

2009: 115 observations in PSE

2010: 299 observations conducted

  • Classrooms rated on 14 individual ELLCO elements
  • 5 point evidence scale (5 = exemplary or strong evidence)
  • 2 subscales:
    • General Classroom Environment
    • Language, Literacy and Curriculum
ellco study questions
ELLCO Study Questions
  • What is the quality of literacy practices in ODE-funded early education programs?
  • How do the scores of programs and classrooms compare with recognized standards of effective literacy practice (defined as a 4 or 5 on the ELLCO rating scales)?
  • To what extent are teachers (best practices) and programs (capacity) making progress toward reaching or exceeding recognized standards of literacy practice that promote literacy success?
  • Based on the ELLCO results, what are statewide or local professional development needs?
