The Parent Appraisal of Children's Experiences (PACE) is a parent-completed measure that is used to collect information about the health, family situations, and school readiness skills of students entering kindergarten. The PACE provides schools and communities with a conduit for obtaining information that will help them paint a picture of their incoming kindergarten population.
The PACE collects:
History of childcare arrangements
Child’s detailed health history, including birth conditions
Maternal smoking and drinking behaviors during pregnancy
Assessment of the child's fine and gross motor, and sensory functioning
Speech and language development
School readiness (cognitive) skills
Social, emotional, and behavioral functioning
Life experiences and family routines
Administration: Parents, with assistance from school nurses, teachers, and school administrators
Scannable paper forms can be returned to Children’s Institute to quickly score and summarize the data you’ve collected. Profiles, percentiles, and reports showing total strengths, needs, and trends are provided where applicable. Pre/post evaluations and data files are also available. If you prefer a web-based application, the COMET® Data Management System provides these instruments along with many other, customized e-instruments and reports.
