Better beginnings: Partnering with Families for Early Learning home visit observations

Mathematica Policy Research conducted observations of PFEL home visits between fall 2008 and summer 2009. Trained Mathematica observers conducted three rounds of observations of each PFEL home visitor. The primary goal of these observations was to provide feedback to the home visit teams in each community about the content and quality of their visits. The teams could then use this feedback to support the implementation and quality of their visits. A secondary goal was to pilot the observation measures employed for their potential usefulness in assessing implementation in future evaluations of PFEL. This brief provides an overview of the observation instruments and describes the content and quality of the observed PFEL home visits. (author abstract)
