Early Achievers standards validation study: Final report
The Statewide Internal Standards Validation Study of Early Achievers addressed whether elements of Washington State's Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) for early care and education are associated with measurable gains in children's outcomes across developmental domains. With this validation study, Washington joins a handful of other states that have attempted to examine whether sites that receive higher ratings are actually producing better outcomes in terms of child development (Karoly, 2014). The University of Washington Childcare Quality & Early Learning Center for Research & Professional Development (CQEL) conducted this study from June 2014 through December 2015 in partnership with the Washington State Department of Early Learning (DEL).
