The complex nature of family literacy makes it hard for one program coordinator to act as an instructional leader across the domains of early and adult education. Family literacy has four program components; Early Education, Parenting and Parent Child Interactive Literacy (AKA, PACT), and of course Adult Education. Adult Education is in relatively good shape with the TABE and CASAS used routinely, in keeping with the state's NRS requirements. I'm in touch with 63 local programs as the state evaluator in two states. In Missouri, programs use either the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test Revised (PPVT), or the Preschool Language Scales (most current). Pat McKee, USDEd Even Start program officer is quite comfortable with programs using the PPVT receptive language subscale. It's been used nationally for outcomes evaluation. As for Parenting Education, Diane DiAngelo and Doug Powell at RMC developed the PEP. It is a solid tool that informs program component design and contributes to staff development needs assessment. In Missouri, we use an over-simplified tool call the Parent Observation Guide to assess parent-child interactive literacy (PACT). It gets at the five key components of SBRR. The key to all of these assessments is to connect the data generated by administering them to good practice. Something sorely lacking in many venues. Further professional development in test administration and instructional implications is sorely needed if Even Start can hope to produce the outcomes evidence demanded by the administration. Best, Jeri Levesque, Ed.D.
