Head Start FACES 2000: A Whole-Child Perspective on Program Performance
 


Children entering Head Start are at a great disadvantage to other children, as evidenced by the children’s initial scores on standardized assessments of cognitive skills. Program administrators, educators, and researchers can access findings from the Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES) that confirm that the gap between Head Start children and the general population of school-age children narrows during the Head Start year on key components of school readiness.






In 2000, FACES began data collection on a new national cohort—FACES 2000. Since then plans were implemented for a third cohort. Longitudinal data on successive, scientifically representative samples of children, families, teachers, classrooms, and programs are available. More>>
