School and Day Care Screen


School and Day Care Screen


The School/Day Care Screen was developed by PHDCN staff and obtained information regarding schools, day care, and after-school programming. It also obtained information regarding enrollment in any special programming and parental involvement in school.

WAVE 1: The School Screen (PDF 7MG) obtained information regarding schools attended, involvement in day care and after-school programming, and enrollment in any special programming. It was administered to subjects' primary caregivers in Cohorts 3 to 15 and to subjects, themselves, in Cohort 18.

WAVE 2: The School and Day Care Screen (PDF 3.8MG) obtained information regarding the subject's current educational situation, parental involvement in school and expectations for the subject, and the characteristics of the childcare setting and provider. It was administered to subjects' primary caregivers in Cohorts 0 to 15.

WAVE 3: The School Screen (PDF 3.4MG) focused on parental involvement at school and educational expectations for the subject. It also obtained information related to the history of special classifications of the subject and after-school activities of the subject. It also focused on the absence or presence of certain cognitive stimuli, including varied learning experiences and diverse educational materials. It contained some of the school-related questions from the Wave 2 Home and Life Interview. It was administered to subjects' primary caregivers in Cohorts 3, 6, and 9.
