Q-CCIIT: Measuring the Quality of Caregiver–Child Interactions: Free Webinar for Early Childhood Professionals
Do you want to better understand caregivers’ interactions with infants and toddlers?
On March 17, Mathematica launched a groundbreaking new quality measurement observation tool, now available to the early childhood community (including program administrators, professional development providers, researchers, and others) during a webinar from 1:00 p.m. 2:00 p.m. (ET). The measurement tool—known as Quality of Caregiver–Child Interactions for Infants and Toddlers, or Q-CCIIT—collects information about caregivers' interactions with children up to ag 36 months. Q-CCIIT data can be used to understand how caregivers in particular classrooms and family child care homes:
- Engage in positive and nurturing interactions;
- Build children’s cognitive skills and problem-solving abilities; and
- Enhance language and literacy development.
During the webinar, Mathematica early childhood experts Shannon Monahan and Ashley Kopack Klein, and Diane Horm from the University of Oklahoma at Tulsa, shared information about using the Q-CCIIT and upcoming observer training opportunities. They also responded to your questions about the various Q-CCIIT features.
