Training/Event Description:


PAS Reliability Training is offered at the McCormick Center in Wheeling, Illinois twice per year (Spring and Fall).  Please check the McCormick Center calendar for future dates.


This multi-day training is intended for those whose goal is research, evaluation, or monitoring quality with the Program Administration Scale (PAS). Organizational assessments used for quality rating systems, program evaluations, or pre/post intervention studies depend on valid and reliable data collection methodologies. The PAS Reliability Training provides an in-depth analysis of the items and quality indicators in the Program Administration Scale. This training is designed for individuals who want to ensure that PAS 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 PAS certification.

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