Accept My Profile: Perspectives for Head Start Profiles of Program Effects on Children. Appendices to Technical Report. Volume II (Revised Edition).
Mediax Associates, Inc., Westport, CT.
The second of three volumes, this document provides a description of the coding system, the rules and the procedures followed in interpreting and classifying 4,896 statements of desired program effects on Head Start children. The statements had been identified and rated by parents, staff and teachers in Input Workshops conducted by the Head Start project for developing profiles of program effects. These systems, rules and procedures have been prepared as an aid in combining similar statements, in evaluating the values participants assign to particular characteristics, in conceptualizing various domains of Head Start children's development, and in making recommendations concerning characteristics to be measured in order to identify program effects. Reduced listings of 1,516 child development characteristics, sorted by process, content, and dimension are provided. The classification system described in this document is subject to the limitations of classification systems discussed in Chapter III of the Technical Report (Volume I). (Author/RH)
