The PDG-R team will do the following to improve California’s program performance evaluation:
- Identify baseline data needed to inform PDG-R activities, develop data collection and management systems for accessible use and reporting of data.
- Monitor progress of Professional Learning System platform, related courses, coaches and innovative higher education pathways to expand workforce (participation, survey, persistence data, focus groups, degree/credential outcomes).
- Monitor quality system redesign process and impact (surveys of field, level of participation by types of providers and quality metrics).
- Assess progress to address need and increase capacity in high-need areas (tribal communities; friend, family, neighbor providers; families experiencing homelessness; family child care; mental health; coordinate data collection and analysis with state and local needs assessment, Early Childhood Integrated Data System development).
