The Evaluation Data Coordination Project (EDCP) was an effort to begin the process of developing common measurements and reporting formats for selected ACF evaluation projects. Through discussions with project staff from nine ongoing ACF-supported studies, the project developed “options documents” with information about a range of measures available for selected constructs. The options documents generally provide information about a range of measures available for assessing a given construct, such as the psychometric properties. They do not, however, include recommendations of a specific measure or set of measures to be used. The final report, “The Evaluation Data Coordination Project: Common Constructs and Measures Across Nine ACF Studies and Other Key Data Collection Efforts,” presents these options documents for income and earnings, child care quality, parental monitoring/awareness, and children’s behavior problems.
