The CHEERS Check-In Tool is scheduled to be released by the end of the week. Here is a quick look at the new assessment.
Located in the Guardian > Assessments section. Choose CHEERS Check-In from the Add New list.
Note: Not seeing CHEERS Check-In in your list? The Main Admin for your program can check in Setup to see if the tool is set to show. (see below for more details)
At the bottom, subscores are added up along with an overall Total. If the assessment is not complete, the scores will not be totaled. An “incomplete” indicator in red should help bring that to your attention in case a question was accidentally skipped. You will still be able to save your entry as incomplete and come back to it later.
Go to Reports > Assessment Reports > CHEERS Check-In Tool where you can run 2 types of reports

We’ve recently added the Child Scales to the Life Skills Progression assessment.
When creating the LSP, choose the child to include on the LSP. If there are multiple children in the family that you want to include on the LSP, you can select each child to be included on the same LSP. They will allow be added to the bottom of the LSP you are entering.
The APR, PMR, Screening Compliance – new enrolls and Family Assessment Compliance reports have been updated. Here are the key updates for each.
Children with “Current Education Status” marked as “Kindergarten” will be excluded from items II.11 and II12 and all items related to them. Important – When completing your final APR report, remind your home visitors not to update any children entering into kindergarten for the next program year until after the APR has been completed for the previous program year.
Screening compliance for newly enrolled children: Children that received a completed screening 90 days before their enroll date will be included in items VI.3a and VI.4a.
“Newly enrolled” is defined by the very first PVR falling inside the reporting period.
The PMR Numerator and Denominator calculations come directly from certain APR items shown here
SCREENING COMPLIANCE – NEW ENROLLS
A ‘Due by‘ column was added which is day 90 from the date of the 1st PVR. If the child has not been enrolled longer than 90 days from the 1st PVR date, then this column will just show blank.
‘PAT Compliance‘ was updated to also count completed screenings within 90 days prior to the child’s enroll date
FAMILY ASSESSMENT COMPLIANCE
‘Date of 1st PVR‘ – The report will now show the date of the 1st PVR that occurs on, or after, the guardian’s enroll date
‘Due by‘ – This column was added and will display either day 90 from the 1st PVR for new guardians or day 90 from the 1st day in the report date range for guardians whose 1st PVR was before the report date range
The date the assessment is now separated into 2 columns
‘Date LSP, PFS, NCFAS Conducted‘ – Will display the date of the assessment entered in Visit Tracker.
‘Date of PVR with “Family Assessment” Checked‘ – For those programs that use an assessment not in Visit Tracker, the report will display the date of the PVR where the assessment was conducted
The compliance column will now show blank if the ‘Due by‘ date has not passed.
Let us know if you have any questions regarding these reports.
