415. Capturing Curriculum and Assessment in QRIS Ratings: What Features are Most Important to Document?
|Date:||Monday July 16, 2018|
|Time:||3:30 PM - 5:00 PM|
A recent review of research highlights curricula as an important dimension of early care and education programs that is associated with children’s development. Most QRISs include standards related to curriculum and assessment, but QRIS staff have questions about how effective current strategies are for capturing what is most important about implementation. This session will share recent research and examples of the strategies states are using to document curriculum and assessment. Panelists from research and practice perspectives will discuss the challenges and opportunities of using different approaches. Participants will share their experiences and insights and contribute to the development of recommendations for developing best practices.
