This study is one of the rigorous research studies of REL West (the Regional Educational Laboratory—West) and will measure the impact of the PITC on child care quality and children's development. The evaluation is conducted by Berkeley Policy Associates in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin and SRM Boulder. Evaluation measures include baseline and follow-up questionnaires for parents, programs, and caregivers; baseline and follow-up program observations; and two rounds of child observations/interviews to measure children's language, social and cognitive development. Baseline data collection took place 2007; follow-up data collection took place in 2008, 2009, and will be completed in 2010.
