A new tool from the Nebraska Academy for Early Childhood Research is now available to help researchers collaborate on early childhood assessments.
NAECR’s Early Childhood Measures Exchange is designed to help researchers find, explore and access early childhood assessments available from other NAECR researchers.
Since a key component of successful, impactful research is strong measurement, the online tool is designed to increase access to early childhood assessments and support collaboration around measurement.
The Exchange provides a library of early childhood assessment tools targeting child progress and development. It includes early childhood researchers from across the University of Nebraska system who have expertise in child skill assessments, and indicates whether the tool is available for review or use by colleagues.
Users can sort by domain/construct, measure name, measure availability, researcher name and campus. The Exchange also includes links to other resources, such as reference libraries and testing toolkits.
The first phase of the Exchange is focused on assessments of child progress and development. Future phases will incorporate other domains, including parent and professional reports.
To add measures to the Exchange, please contact Sommer Fousek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
