Matching State Goals to a Model of Outcomes and Indicators for Age 3. Technical Report 13.
Seppanen, Patricia; And Others
A national survey of state-articulated student goals and outcomes led to the analysis of documents from four states for correspondence with the outcomes specified for age 3 in the conceptual model of the National Center on Educational Outcomes for Students with Disabilities (NCEO). In the survey, 36 states (including the District of Columbia) provided information about outcomes-related goals. Analysis of submitted documents addressing learner goals, objectives or standards found only four states (Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, and Washington) that included documents which addressed the age 3 level. Overall, the study found a moderate correspondence at the domain and outcome levels but an apparent lack of correspondence at the indicator level though this may have been more due to the degree of specificity used by states than a lack of conceptual congruence with the NCEO model. Charts and graphs compare the congruence at the levels of domains, outcomes, and indicators for Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, and Washington. Reports of the document analysis done for each of these states are provided. (DB)
