This report is in the public domain. Permission to reproduce is not necessary. Overview This Brief compares three hypothetical Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) that use different rating structures: block, points, and hybrid. Because the quality standards in the hypothetical QRIS are held relatively constant across structures, analyses can be conducted to determine how structure relates to key QRIS outcomes. Three outcomes are examined: the distribution of programs across ratings… CONTINUE READING
