CSPR Data Summary Presentation 2008 Even Start SEA Coordinator Meeting
2 Purpose of Collecting Even Start Data Inform the Department and Congress of Even Start accomplishments Determine where improvements are needed GPRA data collected on the CSPR report provides OMB information for program funding State agencies may use data to inform collaborators
3 Reminders This is a data reporting system, not an evaluation. There are limitations on extent to which data can be analyzed. Need to be cautious on drawing conclusions about program impact based on data.

34 What can States do to improve data collection? Provide additional grantee training on CSPR measures Clarify testing guidelines, e.g., scheduling of post tests Use consultants to collect CSPR data if necessary (e.g., PPVT; PALS) Use desk and onsite monitoring to reinforce importance of accurate and complete data collection Revise data collection forms as needed
