About Parent Gauge

Parent Gauge is a web-based tool that measures parent experience and the impact of your program's engagement efforts.

Through a series of closed- and open-ended questions, Parent Gauge explores a family's experience with entry and transition, knowledge of child development, empowerment and identity, relationships with staff, family growth and stability, and health and nutrition. The tool provides immediate feedback to staff regarding parent needs, but it also provides data on program effectiveness.

The tool is administered 2-3 times during the year, and the user-friendly dashboard provides immediate, color-coded, directional feedback to staff. Data can easily be reviewed at the staff, center, and program levels, and anonymized data is aggregated for state and national level analytics and benchmarking.
