Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) resources for programs

The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) created a series of resources to help programs reach higher levels of quality.

QRIS Toolbox

The QRIS Toolbox includes resources to help programs and providers with their QRIS applications.

QRIS Measurement Tools

If your program is at Level 2, 3 or 4 according to QRIS standards, you must use QRIS Measurement Tools as part of your QRIS self-assessment process. You can use these Tools to measure process quality indicators (teacher-child interactions) and structural quality indicators (program administration & leadership).
