The next section is a detailed descriptions of the procedures followed and the instrumentation used to measure these outputs. The findings of the evaluation contains detailed information about the numbers and types of participants and expenditure patterns. It also contains a discussion of the institutional changes which have resulted from the ECE reform.

Among the findings are that ECE school are making major changes throughout many program areas, and that statistically, students in the ECE process achieve significantly higher than do matched groups of students not in the program.
