Resource Type: Executive Summary

Date Issued: 2021
Publisher(s): RAND Corporation
Description: Over the course of the evaluation, we addressed ten research questions organized under two broad headings: (1) the assessment process and tier ratings and (2) coaching (Table S.1). To address these research questions, the RAND study team engaged in multiple data-collection and research activities from February 2019 through March 2020, including a survey of early learning providers; administrative data analysis; observations of coaching sessions; and focus groups and interviews with early learning providers, coaches, TAs, and other QSLA stakeholders. Data from each source addressed multiple evaluation topics and research questions. We conducted this set of activities to develop a rich picture of the QSLA model and the focal topics of the evaluation. (author abstract)
