The Child Development Associate Program: Prototype Model; CDA Training Provider Improvement System.
Jones, Leroy; And Others
Survey and assessment instruments used in the Child Development Associate (CDA) Training Provider Improvement System are offered in this document. Included are a self-assessment tool for CDA training providers and an update of the National Program Survey. The survey was designed to address the need for a national database on the CDA program and collects such information as amount and source of program funds, number and types of trainees, training costs, positions of training providers, training methods, staff responsible for training, and training program impacts. The CDA Training Provider Improvement System was designed to help providers assess the quality of their training and to identify program strengths and weaknesses. The assessment instrument focuses on numbers and types of trainees served; training curricula and methods employed; staff providing training; implementation of CDA training criteria; and program organization, administration, management, processes, costs, outcomes, and impacts.
