Illinois QRIS Validation and Child Outcomes Study

The purpose of this project is to conduct a validation study of center-based programs registered in ExceleRate Illinois as well as a child outcomes study of preschool-aged children. Through gathering of program and classroom observations; director, teacher, and parent surveys; and child assessments, results will help examine the extent to which ExceleRate Illinois meaningfully distinguishes program quality and the extent to which rating levels relate to child outcomes.
