Product code : 621-19-006
Price $350/person, includes training, examination, and Preschool PQA–R (with materials checklist)
This online workshop provides hands-on experience in observing, recording, and evaluating program quality using HighScope's Preschool Program Quality Assessment – Revised (PQA–R) instrument. Fee includes the instrument, training, and participation in HighScope's online examination of rater reliability.
The Program Quality Assessment – Revised (PQA–R) is one of the approved instruments for evaluating all Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) classrooms. Because it is critical that reliable and valid data is entered into each PQA–R, GSRP Early Childhood Specialists (ECS) using PQA–R must receive formal training in the tool. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) strongly recommends participation in the online version of PQA–R training.
MDE is defining formal PQA–R training as training implemented by HighScope Field Consultants or HighScope Staff. The approved training must use the HighScope PQA–R Training Agenda and result in a Certificate of Completion from the HighScope Educational Research Foundation. Any ECS who is not currently a reliable assessor and who wishes to use the PQA–R must complete either the online or in-person PQA–R training and examination.
