Pyramid Model Fidelity Measures

Outcomes Monitoring System (OMS)
The SEFEL Outcomes Monitoring System (OMS) was built to support the Pyramid Model initiative in Maryland. The SEFEL OMS provides ongoing fidelity and outcomes monitoring of programs using the Pyramid Model for the state of Maryland, which help to enhance children's social and emotional development and school readiness. The OMS evaluation will help to improve training and implementation efforts and also provide data that helps move programs to implement the Pyramid Model in a more standardized way.

The resources below are categorized by tier of the Pyramid Model and provide resources for Teacher and Providers to use in the classroom and in home visits.
