The Child and Family Data Archive (CFData) is pleased to announce the release of data from the Study of Coaching Practices in Early Care and Education Settings (SCOPE 2019-2021) (ICPSR 38290). This release provides data from the second phase of the study.

SCOPE 2021 aimed to understand the practice and processes of coaching -- and professional development more broadly -- in supporting early child education (ECE) settings throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and how those practices and processes have been adapted or changed in the context of the pandemic. The SCOPE 2021 surveys expanded the focus on remote versus in-person coaching strategies.

The SCOPE project was a mixed-methods study conducted in seven states, and included centers and FCCs that served preschool-age children from families with a low income. The SCOPE data collection occurred in two phases, with initial data collection occurring in 2019 and follow-up data collection occurring in 2021 (referred to as SCOPE 2019 and SCOPE 2021, respectively).

Access to these data require an application. For more information or for assistance with accessing the data, please contact us at
