The characteristics of the 66 research reports as a whole are
summarised in the Results section of the Research
Guide. The characteristics include country of origin, sample
size, methods, and so forth. The Scorecards, on the other
hand, summarise the characteristics of only the set of studies
that provided evidence for linking an individual child care
factor to children�s development.
Scorecards go a step further by also describing
characteristics of each individual report that contributed to
the evidence. The reader is provided with the report�s
citation, abstract, and a summary table of the study
characteristics. The full-text of the report, where available,
can be obtained as well.
