Do program sites that engage in inclusion activities have higher quality rating scores?

Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS)

General Analysis Recommendations

First, calculate the change in QRIS Scores, by subtracting the previous QRIS score from the current one. Scores that are positive indicate an increase while scores that are negative indicate a decrease. Compare these scores between those that do and those that do not engage in any of the activities in the data element Inclusion Activities. Another option is to create a scale of the five inclusion activities and compare the scale scores to the change in ratings.
