A Multidimensional Examination of Early Childhood Program Quality: Combining Classroom Process Quality and Parent Involvement to Understand Developmental and School Readiness Outcomes for Early Head Start and Head Start Children

Erikson Institute will investigate the relationship between classroom process quality and parent involvement in center-based Early Head Start and Head Start programs and their effect on children's development and school readiness. The sample will consist of datasets from the Early Head Start National Evaluation Study and the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES 1997 cohort). Five types of measures will be used: (a) classroom process quality, (b) parent involvement, (c) child outcomes, (d) demographic covariates, and (e) program characteristics. Results are expected to identify (a) dimensions of classroom process quality and parent involvement that contribute to children's social adjustment and academic achievement, and (b) national profiles of program quality associated with children's social adjustment and academic achievement.
