    SPP 7 HELP from TEASE

    Indicator 7 is the percent of preschool children with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) who demonstrate improved:

    • Positive social-emotional skills (including social relationships); 
    • Acquisition and use of knowledge and skills (including early language/ communication and early literacy); and 
    • Use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs.

    Based upon the specifics designated within indicator 7 and the requirements to report data for all local education agencies (LEAs), the state will use the Early Childhood Outcome Center’s  Childhood Outcomes Summary Form (COSF) model as a method for developing an Early Childhood Outcomes Measurement System. The COSF is a template which allows LEA staff to record multiple sources of assessment information regarding a student’s level of functioning in each of the prescribed outcome areas. The form also serves as a template for converting individualized assessment data into a consistent system for statewide reporting.
