Specific data collection activities will include direct in-person assessments of children, telephone surveys of parents, self- administered teacher surveys and teacher ratings of children, self- administered preschool director surveys, informal grantee director in- depth interviews, classroom observations, and extraction of records on children. Information collected will include the following: Names; addresses; demographic information such as race/ethnicity, age, educational background, and family income for children in the sample and their parents; preschool staff answers to interview questions; children's results from early literacy and language assessments; and teacher reports of children's social and emotional outcomes.
