Greenwood, Charles R.; Walker, Dale; Hornbeck, Marguerite; Hebbeler, Kathleen; Spiker, Donna
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v27 n1 p2-18 Spr 2007
Policy decision makers, early educators, and early interventionists face numerous challenges as they develop and implement statewide accountability systems to evaluate and improve children's early intervention and early childhood special education outcomes. Kansas was an early adopter of the Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF) developed by the Early Childhood Outcomes Center as a means of integrating multiple sources of information on children's performance and to meet policy requirements of the state and the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). The purpose of this article is to describe the Kansas experience and to report preliminary findings for entry-level COSF data. Implications are discussed.
