Additional Information About B-7

B-7A


A-1
  • APR Definition: Of those preschool children who entered the preschool program below age expectations in positive social-emotional skills (including social relationships), the percent who substantially increased their rate of growth by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program.
  • Calculation: [# of preschool children reported in progress category (c) plus # of preschool children reported in category (d)] divided by [# of preschool children reported in progress category (a) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (b) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (c) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (d)] times 100
A-2
  • APR Definition: The percent of preschool children who were functioning within age expectations in positive social-emotional skills (including social relationships) by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program.
  • Calculation: [# of preschool children reported in progress category (d) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (e)] divided by [the total # of preschool children reported in progress categories (a) + (b) + (c) + (d) + (e)] times 100

B-7B


B-1
  • APR Definition: Of those preschool children who entered the preschool program below age expectations in acquisition and use of knowledge and skills (including early language/communication and early literacy), the percent who substantially increased their rate of growth by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program.
  • Calculation: [# of preschool children reported in progress category (c) plus # of preschool children reported in category (d)] divided by [# of preschool children reported in progress category (a) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (b) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (c) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (d)] times 100
B-2
  • APR Definition: The percent of preschool children who were functioning within age expectations in acquisition and use of knowledge and skills (including early language/communication and early literacy) by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program.
  • Calculation: [# of preschool children reported in progress category (d) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (e)] divided by [the total # of preschool chil-dren reported in progress categories (a) + (b) + (c) + (d) + (e)] times 100

B-7C


C-1
  • APR Definition: Of those preschool children who entered the preschool program below age expectations in use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs, the percent who substantially increased their rate of growth by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program.
  • Calculation: [# of preschool children reported in progress category (c) plus # of preschool children reported in category (d)] divided by [# of preschool children reported in progress category (a) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (b) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (c) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (d)] times 100
C-2
  • APR Definition: The percent of preschool children who were functioning within age expectations in use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs by the time they turned 6 years of age or exited the program.
  • Calculation: [# of preschool children reported in progress category (d) plus # of preschool children reported in progress category (e)] divided by [the total # of preschool chil-dren reported in progress categories (a) + (b) + (c) + (d) + (e)] times 100

Calculation Notes

  • Percent of preschool children who did not improve functioning = [(# of preschool children who did not improve functioning) divided by (# of preschool children with IEPs assessed)] times 100.
  • Percent of preschool children who improved functioning but not sufficient to move nearer to functioning comparable to same-aged peers = [(# of preschool children who improved functioning but not sufficient to move nearer to functioning comparable to same-aged peers) divided by (# of preschool children with IEPs assessed)] times 100.
  • Percent of preschool children who improved functioning to a level nearer to same-aged peers but did not reach it = [(# of preschool children who improved functioning to a level nearer to same-aged peers but did not reach it) divided by (# of preschool children with IEPs assessed)] times 100.
  • Percent of preschool children who improved functioning to reach a level comparable to same-aged peers = [(# of preschool children who improved functioning to reach a level comparable to same-aged peers) divided by (# of preschool children with IEPs assessed)] times 100.
  • Percent of preschool children who maintained functioning at a level comparable to same-aged peers = [(# of preschool children who maintained functioning at a level comparable to same-aged peers) divided by (# of preschool children with IEPs assessed)] times 100.
