Parent Gauge™
PFCE Measurement Tool

Thank you to the programs who assisted with the research and testing of Parent Gauge™

We want to acknowledge and thank the pilot participants of the PFCE evaluation tool, now officially known as Parent Gauge™, for their time and effort which allowed us to refine the tool and make it widely available. With the data that they collected in their parent interviews and the feedback that they provided the NORC research team at the University of Chicago, NHSA can now offer the first valid and reliable instrument aligned with the Office of Head Start’s PFCE Framework. This tool will help Head Start programs across the country measure their family engagement and will support efforts for continuous improvement, and we couldn’t have done it without their help!
