Program Administration Scale, 3rd Edition (PAS-3)

by Teri N. Talan, Jill M. Bella, and Paula Jorde Bloom

Research consistently finds that high-quality administrative practices are crucial for ensuring program quality as well as beneficial results for children and families.  This valuable tool includes 25 items clustered in 9 subscales, which measure whole leadership functions of center-based early care and education programs. The PAS-3 is applicable for multiple uses: program self-improvement, technical assistance, professional development, quality monitoring, research, evaluation, and public awareness.

This third edition of the PAS includes updated national norms, revisions to support the reliable use of the instrument, and additions to better assess the effectiveness of early childhood leadership practices.
