Training/Event Description:

This multi-day training is intended for those whose goal is research, evaluation, or monitoring quality on the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS). Family child care program assessments used for quality rating and improvement systems, program evaluations, or pre/post intervention studies depend on valid and reliable data collection methodologies. The BAS Reliability Training provides an in-depth analysis of the items and quality indicators in the BAS.  This training is designed for individuals who want to ensure that the BAS assessments are valid, reliable, and administered consistently across programs. The training concludes with a reliability test. Participants who are reliable with the national anchors are eligible for BAS certification.

There is an additional fee of $150 to become a Certified BAS Assessor. Information on certification is available on the McCormick Center’s website.
