This session was presented during BUILD 2022 National Conference.

Sometimes the best way forward is to knock down existing structures and rebuild them from the ground up. Such is the case with QRIS, which should measure meaningful differences in the quality of ECE programs but in practice are only weakly associated with child outcomes. As a result, providers lack the information they need to improve and families do not know which programs will best address their needs. Using powerful videos and real-world state examples, the session explores how states can more accurately and equitably measure critical aspects of program quality that support children’s healthy growth and development.
