Procedures for Developing Evidence-Informed Performance Checklists for Improving Early Childhood Intervention Practices

  •  Carl Dunst    


A conceptualization-operationalization-measurement framework is described for developing evidence-informed early childhood intervention performance checklists. Performance checklists include lists of practice indicators where the indicators, taken together, operationally define particular types of intervention practices that, when used as intended, can be expected to have desired outcomes and benefits. The use of the framework for operationalizing recommended practices is described to illustrate its applicability for developing tools for improving early childhood intervention.
