Data use in quality rating and improvement systems: Lessons learned from Quality Start Los Angeles

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Cannon, Jill S.; Gomez, Celia J.; Whitaker, Anamarie A.;
Date Issued: 2020
Publisher(s): RAND Corporation
Description: This report highlights several broad data-use lessons drawn from the RAND Corporation's experiences as a research partner with Quality Start Los Angeles (QSLA), the QRIS in Los Angeles County. We analyzed QSLA data from 2013 through 2019 to examine trends in early learning provider QRIS tier ratings, rating component scores, Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) scores, and Environment Rating Scale (ERS) scores. We analyzed QSLA data from 2018–2020 to examine coaching and technical assistance supports. In our current partnership, we did not assess data related to child outcomes, but given QSLA goals, those outcomes are a logical next step for data system development. (author abstract)
