Oregon's quality rating improvement system (QRIS) validation study one: Associations with observed program quality

The study described in this report is the first of two studies on the validity of Oregon's QRIS. This study uses a measure of the observed quality of adult-child interactions as a benchmark against which to compare QRIS ratings. Research Questions 1. What is the quality of programs in the QRIS Validation Study, as indicated by CLASS scores and QRIS ratings? 2. How highly correlated are the QRIS domains and standards with one another? 3. How well do programs' QRIS ratings differentiate observed quality of adult-child interactions? 4. How do certain QRIS standards & indicators of interest relate to observed quality? 5. How well are other personnel measures associated with observed quality and final QRIS ratings? (author abstract)
