The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) has launched the Variations in Implementation of Quality Interventions (VIQI): Examining the Quality-Child Outcomes Relationship in Child Care and Early Education Project. VIQI is a large-scale, experimental study that aims to inform policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders about effective ways to support the quality and effectiveness of early care and education (ECE) centers for promoting young children’s learning and development by building rigorous evidence that aims to: 1) identify dimensions of quality within ECE settings that are key levers for promoting children’s outcomes; 2) inform what levels of quality are necessary to successfully support children’s developmental gains; 3) identify drivers that facilitate and inhibit successful implementation of interventions aimed at strengthening quality; and, 4) understand how these relations vary across different ECE settings, staff and children – all noted gaps in the knowledge base guiding policy, investments, and practice in the ECE field. OMB most recently approved data collection activities for the Impact Evaluation and Process Study on 07/22/2021 (OMB #0970-0508). The study team began data collection activities for the Impact Evaluation and Process Study in August 2021 for a set of baseline instruments. The team is currently preparing for a set of follow-up data collection activities to take place in the spring of 2022. These activities include classroom observations, direct child assessments, surveys, and teacher reports on children. The following request includes proposed adjustments for select instruments as part of the follow-up data collection.
