An Assessment of Head Start Supplementary Training Programs In Providing Child Development Associate Competency Based Training. Volume I: Executive Summary - National Survey.
Gilman, Ann; Signatur, Diane
This executive summary briefly outlines the methodology used and data collected in the National Survey of Head Start Supplementary Training/Child Development Associate (HSST/CDA) Competency Based Training Programs. (HSST/CDA training programs are intended to prepare Head Start classroom staff to meet the competency requirements of the CDA credential.) Three sets of survey questionnaires--one set each for project managers, field supervisors, and trainees--were distributed and self administered. Questionnaire findings are presented briefly in a question and answer format under the following general headings: characteristics of the program, characteristics of the trainees, assessment (the number of trainees receiving the credential), and opinions of program participants about the effects and strengths of the CDA Training Program. Conclusions derived from the findings are reported and policy requirement considerations for HSST/CDA contractors/grantees are briefly addressed. (Author/SE)
