Accessing families' experiences and engagement using parents' own words.
Go Beyond a Strength and Needs Assessment
Parent Gauge is a family engagement assessment tool designed specifically for Head Start and Early Head Start programs. The tool measures the parent experience and the impact of your program's engagement efforts. It goes beyond counting inputs and outputs and beyond a simple survey that asks parents to report on their housing or employment. Parent Gauge takes this information in context with parents' strengths, aspirations, and perceptions over time.
Is it Right For You?
Parent Gauge is designed to meet the needs of Head Start and Early Head Start programs. Frontline staff—like teachers, family service workers, and home visitors—have conversations with the families in their caseload and get immediate feedback. Leadership gets access to quantitative data to inform program design and measure progress throughout the year.
