Findings from the Integrated Approaches project revealed that the nascent and developing field of two-generation initiatives could be supported by formative research on measuring service implementation in terms of quality, intensity, and intentionality; tracking the uptake of these services by parents and their children; and assessing the outputs of services for both generations. This study will help initiatives improve their readiness for effectiveness evaluations by pursuing four recommendations that emerged from the Integrated Approaches project: 1. develop and refine their theory of change for serving parents and their children together; 2. develop safe and secure data systems that link parent and child records; 3. measure components in the theory of change, including services, outputs, and parent, child, family, and systems outcomes; and 4. use data to understand the intervention and rapidly and continuously improve implementation.
