R2LP's Early Reading First 3 program: A summary of teacher observation and child assessment data, 2010-2013

R2LP's Early Reading First program employed a number of tools to measure teacher and student change through the course of the project. Each is described below along with highlights from a multi-year view of changes in teacher and child scores who were observed/assessed on multiple occasions between January 2010 and June 2013. The Early Language and Literacy Classroom Observation (ELLCO) and Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) were used in teacher classroom observations by third-party evaluators from Wellesley College. The Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, 4th Edition (PPVT-IV), Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening PreK (PALS PreK), and Test of Preschool Early Literacy (TOPEL) were the child assessment tools used with children in each of the classrooms. Student assessments were conducted by R2LP mentor-coaches and external data collectors. (author abstract)
