With funding from the Race-to-the-Top grant, we are working with Oregon State University researchers to conduct a validation study to support the state’s Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS). The QRIS provides technical assistance to child care facilities to improve quality, as well as ratings for child care facilities to help parents in decision-making. Center staff are collecting standardized observational measures of child care quality statewide to assess the extent to which QRIS ratings correspond to observed quality.


This is the "Oregon's QRIS Validation Study One" full report with appendices.

The full report without appendices, and Oregon's QRIS Validation Study One: Associations with Observed Program Quality are included here as supplemental files.
