Program Improvement with Measures of Quality


Event Description

Research has shown that quality programs have a positive impact on child outcomes, school readiness and school success. What is a quality program and how does a program’s vision and desires for the children they care for align with quality measures? Training participants will explore these topics, including quality environment and interaction indicators, and various program assessment tools. An overview on considerations for selecting program assessment tools will also be presented. This training is a prerequisite to attend the other five Measures of Quality Trainings: Using the CLASS, Using the Environment Rating Scales as a Measures of Quality, Selecting and Conducting Program Assessments as Measures of Quality, Using Measures of Quality Data to Inform Practice, and Planning and Implementation Using Measures of Quality.
