This second edition offers a completely revised format and scoring system for ease of use and greater accuracy. Developed by HighScope Educational Research Foundation, the Preschool PQA is appropriate for use in all center-based early childhood settings, including but not limited to those using the HighScope educational approach. The Preschool PQA is an all-in-one program evaluation system with the following features:
