Supporting Babies Through QRIS: A Self-Assessment Tool for U.S. States and Other Jurisdictions
This tool helps states and jurisdictions identify the strengths, opportunities, and gaps in a coordinated system of quality improvement for programs serving infants and toddlers.
The intended audience for these documents includes professionals involved in the development, administration, and implementation of QRIS who would like to learn more about QRIS standards and supports in other states and how they can be created or modified to purposefully support infants and toddlers. This self-assessment tool can be used to identify the strengths, opportunities, and gaps in a coordinated system of quality improvement for programs serving infants and toddlers. The tool is also intended to help states and jurisdictions identify QRIS components that are already in place to support infants and toddlers and to prioritize components that could be added to augment existing supports for infants, toddlers, and families. Purposes include the following:
- To support the development of QRIS content and format with an intentional focus on infants and toddlers
- To guide system-building initiatives around quality improvement that support infants and toddlers
- To inform development and implementation of standards based on best practices for infants and toddlers
