Do you use the assessment measures produced by Children's Institute? Then COMET is available to help you improve the efficiency of your evaluation efforts by allowing you to complete measures online instead of on paper. With COMET you can screen, monitor and evaluate the children served by our programs in real-time.
Using COMET to support program evaluation allows schools to move away from paper-based assessments to an electronic system. The data is accessible immediately, no lag time due to mailing in completed forms and waiting for summary reports. Users can evaluate the data from multiple levels - by the individual, by group, by grade and by school. With flexible reporting, COMET allows you to understand and demonstrate the impact of a program for the children it serves. To learn more about Children's Institute programs, click here.
As Children's Institute's flagship program, Primary Project has been serving kids for over 50 years, supporting school adjustment and social-emotional development. Schools who implement Primary Project use COMET to screen children in the early grades and identify those who may benefit from the program, they then complete pre-post assessments on COMET to monitor progress and report on results. Having the assessment tools available online, as opposed to paper, has increased response rates up to 98% and reduced turn-out time for results from weeks to instant!
