Silver State Stars: Quality Rating Improvement System Pilot Project: Final evaluation report

This evaluation aimed to assess not only the processes and outcomes associated with the pilot sites' completion of the project, but also the perceived utility of the system if it were to be implemented in Southern Nevada. Therefore, data were collected from four primary sources: (1) participating center directors (at two points in time), (2) parents of children in the pilot centers, (3) independent assessments of quality using the Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale (ECERS) or Infant Toddler Environmental Rating Scale (ITERS), and (4) preliminary star ratings using the Silver State Stars criteria. QRIS staff working with centers to implement the system and improve quality in their centers were also consulted for feedback. These four evaluation components will be described below as an outline of the evaluation plan. Findings from each of these components are discussed in a separate section, including specific methodology for each. At the conclusion of the report, overall recommendations for program improvement are listed and explained. (author abstract)
