A measure that gives the early childhood community a rich view into the quality of early care and education settings.
The QCIT (formerly Q-CCIIT), is a single evidence-based observational measure for use in child care and early education settings that serve infants and toddlers. The QCIT uses rich data to open a window into the responsiveness of caregivers and the indicators of quality interactions in caregiver-child relationships.
Early childhood administrators, coaches, practitioners, training and technical assistance providers, researchers, evaluators, and higher education instructors can use the QCIT to inform research, enhance professional development by leveraging caregiver strengths, or guide administrator decision making.
Due to COVID-19 related restrictions, we are still working on getting annual recertification exams in place. We are extending the QCIT certification status of currently certified and provisional QCIT observers through September 30, 2022. We will provide more information about the recertification process in summer 2022 when exams become available.
