The Quality Assessment Services (QAS) Department partners with organizations across the state to deliver valid and reliable assessments to help early childhood education programs and providers with continuous quality improvement efforts. We are the vendor for Colorado Shines Ratings and Assessment and for the Denver Preschool Program CLASS® Ratings. In addition to these two projects, we also offer a variety of fee-for-service assessments. We provide customized assessment projects which typically include project design, scheduling, observation/assessment, feedback reports, and consultation. Our experienced and diverse staff have a passion for high-quality early education and are honored to help make a difference in the lives of young children across the state of Colorado.
