|Child Outcomes Step by Step (Runtime: 8:42)|
The U.S. Department of Education has adopted a set of three child outcomes. These outcomes address three areas of child functioning necessary for each child to be an active and successful participant at home, in the community, and in other places like a child care program or preschool. During the design phase of Results Matter, stakeholders met to review the three child outcomes and discuss how they might be used in Colorado. The overwhelming response was that we should measure these three outcomes for all children as part of the ongoing authentic assessment process for young children in our state. The outcomes provide a way to understand the integrated nature of development and learning in the early childhood years. Measuring progress on the outcomes helps Colorado meet federal reporting requirements for children with disabilities, state requirements for monitoring of student growth and provides a common measure to reflect results across different assessments, age groups, programs and even different state outcome data. This video describes and illustrates the three child outcomes. It is a collaborative presentation of Results Matter, Colorado Department of Education, the Desired Results access Project, Napa County Office of Education, funded by the California Department of Education, Special Education Division, and the Early Childhood Outcomes Center, funded by the Office of Special Education Programs.
