As part of the MA Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), EEC has developed the QRIS Program Manager (QPM) . The Quality Rating and Improvement System Program Manager (QPM) is a secure, web-based application that is used to facilitate the Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) application process. It allows programs to complete their self-assessments and apply online for their rating. It also includes an interface for verifying professional qualifications as submitted in the Professional Qualifications Registry (PQR).
The QRIS Program Manager is available to any early education and care and after/out of school programs in Massachusetts' mixed delivery, interested in participating in the Commonwealth's voluntary quality rating and improvement system. The QRIS Program Manager will help programs manage the QRIS application process.
Using the QRIS Program Manager (QPM), programs can:
- Create, view and update a QRIS program application which includes an online version of the QRIS Self-Assessment Worksheet that assists programs in identifying their self-assessed QRIS level
