Gauging practitioners’ skills can be done using data elements such as Degree or Certificate Type, Technical Assistance Hours, Technical Assistance Focus, and Child Care Years of Experience. These characteristics are then compared to the quality of the program site where the practitioner is employed. Comparisons can be made between these characteristics and a program site’s rating (QRIS Score) or the dimensions of quality used to determine the overall rating (e.g. Curriculum, Use of Assessment, Program Administration Scale Items, CLASS Average, ECERS-R Average). The elements used to analyze dimensions will depend on the unique set of QRIS indicators in each state.
