Measurement updates for the American Indian and Alaska Native Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (AI/AN FACES 2015): A comparison table of AI/AN FACES 2015 to FACES 2014 instruments

This document provides a table summarizing the changes to child assessment, observation, and survey instruments for AI/AN FACES 2015 as compared to FACES 2014. As part of the collaborative design effort, when developing the AI/AN FACES 2015 instruments, the AI/AN FACES 2015 Workgroup reviewed all FACES 2014 measures and survey items-parent survey, direct child assessment, Teacher Child Report, classroom observation, teacher survey, center director survey, and program director survey. Recommendations were made about whether to align (that is, retain measures or items as-is) or adapt, drop, or add items to get at relevant constructs for an AI/AN population. This document provides a table indicating any FACES 2014 items that were adapted or dropped for the AI/AN FACES 2015 instruments, or any new items added. While this study included a specific population (Region XI Head Start programs and the communities they serve), this table may be a resource for future work on the considerations in conducting research with AI/AN communities and tribal community partners.
