COMET began in 2008 as a way for Children’s Institute to support their work in schools performing assessments, shifting away from paper completion and duplication of effort and moving toward electronic completion and utilizing a database to track what’s been completed and what was outstanding. As more organizations adopted the system for their own data collection purposes, an LLC for COMET was formed, solidifying the partnership between Children’s Institute, a nationally-recognized not-for-profit committed to supporting the social-emotional health of children, and SophiTEC, a custom software firm with expertise in database design.
The COMET Team has worked hard to release many new features this year.
The COMET Team has spent many years developing our system with all the features and functions it needs to support the use of data to improve outcomes. In the last year, in particular, we have rolled out a long list of features requested by our customers.
Even 45 years after the inception of Head Start, and nearly15 years since the advent of Universal Prekindergarten (UPK), the question remains: Is the promise of early childhood education being fulfilled?
Our monthly newsletter, "COMET Kindred Spirits" provides resources, best practices and information on new features to those who share COMET's passion for using data to make a difference. Keep up to date with the latest and greatest in the world of data and COMET.
