Early Care and Education Program Quality Indicators Database

Several regulatory scientists asked if I could post the database outputs that were used to generate the ECE Program Quality Indicators. Please find the database output below as an SPSS data output file. It is rather long (150 pages of printouts) but it contains all the key parameters related to generating the reliability and validity of the scale as well as the descriptive outputs for the PQI scale. The PQI scale clearly demonstrated its robustness when compared to the Environmental Rating Scales. It is a solid addition to the ECE research literature. It is a first of its kind in that it is totally generated from an existing statistical methodology used to present key indicators from licensing, QRIS, professional development, technical assistance, training, and accreditation. It is based both upon empirical evidence as well as expert review.
