Measuring the Quality of Caregiver-Child Interactions for Infants and Toddlers (Q-CCIIT)

This Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation (OPRE) report provides an overview of the Quality of Caregiver-Child Interactions for Infants and Toddlers (QCCIIT) observation tool, which was designed to measure the quality of caregiver-child interactions in child care settings serving infants and toddlers. The tool can be used across different types of settings and measures caregiver support for infant/toddler social-emotional development, cognitive development, language and literacy development, as well as areas of concern (negative caregiving behaviors).
