New Jersey Preschool Quality Evaluation Study: Spring 2015: Summary report

The following report details the findings of the New Jersey Preschool Quality Evaluation Study for the 2014-2015 school year for a sample of 296 classrooms across the 31 former Abbott districts in New Jersey. This study is the continuation of work begun by the Early Learning Improvement Consortium's statewide evaluation of Abbott preschool program quality, conducted from the 2002-2003 through the 2008-2009 school year. Through these years, the Department of Early Childhood Education (DECE) has continued to collect classroom quality data on various measures of quality. This report describes the annual results of the classroom observations conducted since 2007 through to this past spring on quality classroom measures for your district. During the 2012-2013 school year, information on classroom quality was collected using only the CLASS tool (some districts only). Consequently, the findings presented below for 2012-2013 reflect scores for only the eight districts that were assessed with the measures of quality that were utilized in previous years. These districts include Camden, East Orange, Irvington, Jersey City, Long Branch, Newark, Paterson, and Phillipsburg. (author abstract)
