Dear School Readiness (SR) Provider,
Congratulations on selecting to participate in child assessment for the 2019/2020 year. We are looking forward to partnering with you on this exciting work!
Based on your 2019/20 School Readiness contract, we know your program has chosen one of the three Office of Early Learning (OEL) approved child assessment tools:
  • Teaching Strategies GOLD
  • High Scope Child Assessment Record (COR)
  • Galileo
Information on the various child assessment tools available is listed below.
The first step in the eligibility process is to provide child assessment Inter-Rater Reliability (IRR) information for 75% of program staff (instructors/directors). Please upload IRR certificates to the Quality Performance System (QPS) for 75% of instructors/directors on your roster by September 1, 2019.
The instructions at the link here will help you to activate your QPS account and upload the reliability certificates (IRR).
