Outcomes Measurement: Framework & Self-Assessment

Child and Family Outcomes Measurement System Tools

The child outcomes and family outcomes self-assessment tools are designed for states to assess their progress towards implementation of a high-quality outcomes measurement system. The tools can assist states in decision-making to improve their outcomes measurement systems.

Child Outcomes Framework and Self-Assessment

The development of the child outcomes framework and self-assessment involved participation of seven diverse partner states, chosen through an application and selection process. The states were: California (619), Colorado (Part C and 619), Delaware (Part C and 619), Maine (Part C and 619), Minnesota (Part C and 619), New York (Part C) and Ohio (Part C and 619).

This tool is designed to be used by state agencies to assess progress toward full implementation of a Child Outcomes Measurement System (COMS) for programs serving young children with delays and disabilities. Previous versions of the self assessment have been re-formatted to allow users to download, enter and save their self-assessment data.

Family Outcomes Framework and Self-Assessment

Development of the Family Experiences and Outcomes Measurement System Framework and Self-Assessment was a collaboration between ECO and four partner states: Connecticut (Part C), Illinois (Part C), Minnesota (Part C and 619), and Texas (Part C).

This tool is designed to be used by state agencies to assess progress toward full implementation of a Family Experiences and Outcomes Measurement System for programs serving young children with delays and disabilities. The self-assessment allows users to download, enter and save their self-assessment data.
