First 5 LA contracted with Mathematica Policy Research, Inc., (MPR) to conduct the First 5 LA/LAUP Universal Preschool Child Outcomes Study (UPCOS). After completing Phase 1 (spring 2007) in which the authors pilot tested the feasibility, reliability, and validity of selected child development measures for the culturally and linguistically diverse population of children served by LAUP programs, they conducted a descriptive pretest-posttest study in 2007-2008. This report summarizes the results of that study. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures and 17 footnotes.)
