CCIS – Child Caregiver Interaction Scale

I have attached two documents by Dr Barbara Carl, Penn State University:  the CCIS – Child Caregiver Interaction Scale and a powerpoint presentation regarding the tool.  This tool is a wonderful example of an effective and efficient observation tool to measure early care and education program quality.  I would recommend state administrators to take a look at it as they develop their tool boxes for measuring quality in their respective states.  Dr Carl’s contact information is at the end of the powerpoint presentation.
