Early Care and Education Quality Improvement: A Typology of Intervention Approaches
This brief is designed to support quality improvement (QI) efforts by describing the status of the evidence and presenting information that categorizes such efforts using a typology of QI models and targets. The brief provides an overview of the current QI context; the methodology for this review; a conceptual framework to categorize QI efforts; a summary of trends in the evidence base on the effectiveness of different types of QI; and a discussion of potential QI efforts that, guided by research and practice, could augment or replace existing approaches. The Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation funded this brief.
