Overview and Application of the INQUIRE Data Tools to Support High Quality Early Care and Education Data
This webinar, the first in a series, provides an orientation to a new set of tools designed by INQUIRE to support the development of high quality early childhood data. With the emergence of new reporting requests and priorities for early childhood data - particularly data related to quality improvement initiatives and Quality Rating and Improvement Systems - states are at a critical juncture for incorporating new data practices and moving toward the development of comprehensive early childhood data systems.
These webinars focus on key topics in the early care and education field and include both webinars sponsored by Research Connections as well as those sponsored by the Child Care Policy Research Consortium (CCPRC) Workgroups.
