Regulatory compliance, licensing, and monitoring measurement principles: Rule compliance versus rule performance

The organization of this paper is as follows. First, let’s introduce what is included when we talk about measurement principles for regulatory compliance, licensing and monitoring systems. Second, provide examples that should be familiar to most individuals who have been involved in the human services, in particular the early care and education field. Third, what are the limitations of these various systems that have been identified in the research literature. Fourth, what are some potential solutions to these limitations. And, fifth, what are the next steps and where do we go to build reliable and valid measurement systems dealing with regulatory compliance, licensing, and program monitoring as these relate to the human services delivery system.
