Training/Event Description:

This multi-day training is intended for those whose goal is research, evaluation, or monitoring quality on 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 the PAS assessments are valid, reliable, and administered consistently across programs. The training concludes with a reliability test. Participants who are 85% or higher reliable with the national anchors are eligible for PAS certification.

There is an additional fee of $125 to become a Certified PAS Assessor. Information on certification is available on the McCormick Center’s website.
