A research article that investigates how many items are necessary to score and how many classrooms are necessary to rate to achieve a representative score on the ECERS-R based on classrooms sampled in one state
This study examined the quality differences between 189 Oklahoma family child care homes representing the various levels of the "Reaching for the Stars" program. A Statewide sample of One-Star, One-Star Plus, and Two-Star homes was selected. The number of Three-Star homes was too small for meaningful comparisons with other Star levels. Descriptive information on the participating Three-Star homes is included. Data indicate that family child care homes look different across the various Star categories.
This Microsoft PowerPoint presentation examines lessons learned from the first five years of the North Carolina Rated License Assessment Project. Charts present the percentage of homes by North Carolina Star Rated License. The average assessment scores achieved in preschool, school-age classrooms, and family child care homes reflect "good" quality.
