Quality Rated’s Temporary Alternate Rating Option: Findings from surveys and interviews


This is the first of two reports on the evaluation of Quality Rated’s Temporary Alternate Rating Option (TARO) conducted by Child Trends. Through surveys and interviews, Child Trends collected the experiences of child care providers who participated in TARO, Quality Rated Improvement Guides (QRIGs), and Technical Assistants (TAs). The findings indicate that providers, QRIGs, and TAs generally had positive impressions of TARO. The researchers offer considerations about how to move forward with subsequent TARO cohorts and towards resuming in-person visits. (author abstract)
