Condry, Sandra; Hayes, William A.
This document reports the pilot test of the two components of the Child and Family Mental Health (CFMH) Evaluation Project -- the impact evaluation component and the in-depth evaluation component. (The impact evaluation is designed to determine the effects of the two primary prevention models of service and activities on the CFMH Head Start programs as compared to their designated controls. The in-depth evaluation is designed to assess the effects of the CFMH's primary preventive activities on Head Start children, families, staff, and center atmosphere.) First, the document specifies the procedures to be used in the pilot study for selecting programs and samples of Head Start children, teachers, and parents, outlines observational schedules, and discusses procedures for the recruitment, hiring, and training of staff. Next, the document briefly reviews the instruments selected for the evaluation and explicates the conditions of use, revisions, and permissions attained to use the instruments. Finally, the site monitors' field operations and data management procedures are described. (Author/MP)
