Mathematica is seeking to hire a team of part-time, short-term classroom observers to work on the American Indian and Alaska Native Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey 2019 (AI/AN FACES 2019), which is sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services, the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation.
About the Study
AI/AN FACES is a large-scale study of Region XI Head Start programs, which are operated by federally recognized AI/AN tribes. The study provides descriptive, nationally representative information on the characteristics, experiences, and development of Region XI Head Start children and families, and the characteristics of the Head Start programs and staff who serve them. The study consists of various components, including classroom observations, child assessments, and surveys for parents, teachers, and other program staff.

During these visits, observers will conduct observations of a set of selected study classrooms.
This is a short-term, part-time position averaging 30 hours per week for approximately 9 weeks. Observers will be required to work a variable schedule, including evenings and weekends, and must be available for extended overnight travel throughout the country.
