Crosswalk of the ECWES and the PAS

by McCormick Center

The Early Childhood Work Environment Survey (ECWES) measures the collective perceptions of staff on ten dimensions of organizational climate (collegiality, professional growth, supervisor support, clarity, reward system, decision making, goal consensus, task orientation, physical setting, and innovativeness). The Program Administration Scale (PAS) is a valid and reliable instrument designed to measure the leadership and management practices in center-based early childhood programs. When used together, the Early Childhood Work Environment Survey and the Program Administration Scale provide a comprehensive picture of quality related to a program’s organizational climate and leadership and management practices. This crosswalk is designed to demonstrate how the tools complement one another.
