Supporting responsive caregiving for the youngest children: Psychometric evidence of the Quality of Care for Infants and Toddlers (QCIT) observational measure
The Quality of Care for Infants and Toddlers (QCIT) observational measure was designed to address the need for a valid and reliable measure of the quality of caregiver-child interactions that could be used in both center-based and family child care (FCC) settings, and with diverse populations. Results from a psychometric field test of 400 classrooms indicated that the QCIT demonstrated strong evidence of reliability and validity. The QCIT was used to capture the quality of caregiver-child interactions for the professional development system We Grow Together. (author abstract)
