2018 QRIS National Meeting

270. Mixed-methods Evaluation of Quality Start LA: Provider Ratings of QRIS Processes, Analyses of Program-Wide Data, and Measures of Stakeholder Collaboration

Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Marina 1

Los Angeles stakeholders are building the county-wide Quality Start LA (QSLA) QRIS using multiple funding streams. In this session we will discuss the mixed-methods external evaluation for which provider (N=203) and stakeholder surveys and interviews were conducted, and program-wide data was reviewed. Providers viewed tier-rating and quality assessment processes less favorably than PD training, orientation, and incentives. Analyses of program-wide quality domain scores found differences between tier levels and for provider types. A stakeholder survey revealed collaboration strengths and challenges.
