What is a Quality Rating and Improvement System

Why did we put a pause on GSOD 1.0

  • Provider Focus Groups – Summer 2011 and Summer 2012 – we listened and made changes.
  • Providers’ concerns about ITERS and ECERS
  • Teacher-child interaction to be measured better in GSOD
  • CLASS – Classroom Assessment and Scoring System – measure of teacher-child interaction
  • Research suggests that children in classrooms with higher CLASS scores have better outcomes
  • Race To The Top Challenge Grants’ expectations – CLASS
  • All of the above required a revisit of GSOD 1.0 standards
