Birth - 5 years. This is a single assessment use of the e-DECA program. Each time an assessment is entered into the system, both from a Parent scoring or Teacher scoring, one single use assessment is needed. (Example, in a licensed year, if a parent assesses a child once and a teacher assesses a child two times there will need to be quantity of 3 single assessments ordered for each child.) This product must be purchased in conjunction with an annual License (Item # 16701) for each program.

e-DECA Suite of Services

The e-DECA is a web-based computer version of a suite of assessments developed by the Devereux Center for Resilient Children, which includes the:

Devereux Early Childhood Assessment for Infants and Toddlers (DECA-I/T)

Devereux Early Childhood Assessment (DECA)

Devereux Early Childhood Assessment - Clinical Form (DECA-C)

The e-DECA administers the assessment online, completes all scoring, stores in a database, and generates numeric and graphic summaries of results.

Available reports:

  • Individual child profile
  • Classroom profile
  • Rater comparison (parent to parent, teacher to parent, and teacher to teacher)
  • Pre and post test comparisons to measure outcomes
  • Parent letter

The e-DECA program requires an annual Web maintenance license and online electronic record forms. Each license allows one person full administrative access to the e-DECA data for her/his program. This "administrator" is also responsible for delegating the appropriate access privileges to the program's staff. Online electronic record forms can be purchased for use By-Administration or By-Child.

The DECA-Clinical Form (DECA-C), designed to be used by mental health professionals with those select children who are showing significant behavioral concerns, is now available in e-DECA 2.0.

e-DECA 2.0 Purchasing Assistant

Purchasing e-DECA2.0 involves two parts. First, an annual license fee is required; second, the appropriate rating option must be selected. Two rating options are available:

  • Option #1: By Child, allows for unlimited ratings throughout the year for a child at a flat cost of $2.95.
  • Option #2: By Administration, is a cost of $1.00/rating administration.

The calculator below will help you in determining which rating option is most cost effective for your program based on how many times per year the teaching staff and families are expected to conduct an assessment rating on the children in your program.

Note: remember to consider child turnover
