About Parent Gauge

Parent Gauge is a family engagement assessment tool designed specifically for Head Start and Early Head Start programs. The tool measures the parent experience and the impact of your program's engagement efforts.

By working together, parents can become better parents and teachers can become better teachers.

Through a series of closed- and open-ended questions, Parent Gauge explores a family's experience with your program. The tool provides immediate feedback to staff regarding family needs, but it also provides data on program effectiveness.

Using Parent Gauge, staff sit down with families 2-3 times during the year for a twenty minute conversation and enter their responses into the easy-to-use web-based platform.
