SPP Indicator 7: A results indicator that meas​ures the percent of preschool children aged 3 through 5 with IEPs who demonstrate improved:

  • 7A. Positive-social emotional skills (including social relationships)
  • 7B. Acquisition and use of knowledge and skills (including early language/communication and early literacy)
  • 7C. Use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs

Indicator 7 Measurement:

  1. Percent of preschool children who did not improve functioning.
  2. Percent of preschool children who improved functioning, but not sufficient functioning comparable to same-aged peers.
  3. Percent of preschool children who improved functioning to a level nearer same-aged peers but did not reach it.
  4. Percent of preschool children who improved functioning to reach a level comparable to same-aged peers.
  5. Percent of preschool children who maintained functioning at a level comparable to same-aged peers.

Indicator 7 Goal:
The goal is for preschool children aged 3 through 5 with IEPs to demonstrate improvement from their initial entry evaluation in the following three outcomes:

  • 7A. Positive-social emotional skills (including social relationships)
  • 7B. Acquisition and use of knowledge and skills (including early language/communication and early literacy)
  • 7C. Use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs
Programs should utilize outcomes data to make changes to educational programming to ensure positive results.

Indicator 7 Data Source:
The ISBE data collection source is the SIS Early Childhood data and the Early Childhood Outcomes (ECO) (state selected data source). The source of the data is the Data Warehouse including the updated operational database, and a snapshot database called the Reporting Data Store (RDS).

Indicator 7 Calculation:
There are two summary statements/indicators for each of the three outcomes:

  • Summary Statement 1 computation: Of those preschool children who entered or exited the preschool program, below age expectations in each outcome, the percent who substantially increased their rate of growth by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program. This is calculated by adding those in c and d above divided by those entering below age expectation, which is a through d above.
    • A1 is calculated as follows: counts from C + D * 100 divided by counts from A + B + C + D.
  • Summary Statement 2 computation: The percent of preschool children who were functioning within age expectations in each outcome by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program. This is calculated by adding those in d and e above divided by all of the students in the program, which is a + b + c + d +e above.
    • A2 is calculated as follows: counts from D + E * 100 divided by counts from A + B + C + D + E.

The students in the cohort must have an entry evaluation.

The students in the cohort must have a progress report within the previous 6 months of exiting Pre-K or of turning Age 5. The progress rating must have been completed within the current school year and be within 6 months of turning 5 years old or exiting the program.

There must be at least 6 months between entry evaluation and progress report.
