The IMPACT Measures Tool is a free repository of early childhood and parenting measures that simplifies the process of finding, comparing, and accessing measurement tools. All measures of IMPACT are scored on their usability, cost, cultural relevance, and technical merit. IMPACT was developed to address the need for an easy way to access a variety of early childhood measures, to understand the key features of each measure, and to make informed decisions when selecting measures. IMPACT is funded by the Heising-Simons FoundationOverdeck Family FoundationPritzker Children’s Initiative, and Valhalla Foundation.

IMPACT provides:

  • A database of measurement and assessment tools in a variety of domains
  • A science-driven scoring system to identify each measure’s key features and strengths
  • Educational resources on measurement in early childhood
