Practitioner Perspective: Assessing Child-Care Quality with a Telephone Interview.
Ponder, Karen W.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v16 n2 p241-43 2001
Discusses findings that child care quality can be measured effectively and efficiently through telephone interview. Notes that interview items were more highly correlated to the materials composite than to the interaction composite of the Environment Ratings Scales. Describes situations where on-site observation is necessary. Suggests that one benefit of using telephone interviews is their "friendliness" with providers. (Author/KB)
