Results Matter Expansion Project


Results Matter is a statewide program that promotes the use of ongoing, developmental, observation-based assessment in early care and education settings, and serves as Colorado’s child and family outcomes measurement system for ages birth-five.  Through partnership with the Colorado Department of Human Services’ Office of Early Childhood, and funded via the Race to the Top - Early Learning Challenge Grant, the Results Matter Child Care Expansion Project advanced the field of Early Childhood Education’s use of authentic assessment by involving more community-based child care centers and family child care homes. The expansion project helped to increase the number of children included in the Results Matter program by 3,500 during the life of the grant, 2013 -2016
