The Environment Rating Scales (ERS) project at Clayton started in 2004 as part of the Research and Evaluation Department and is now part of the Quality Assessment Services Department. The Quality Advancement Team are State Anchors for the Environment Rating Scales - they are your local ERS experts.
The Quality Advancement Team (QAT) is trained annually to become anchors by The Environment Rating Scale Institute (ERSI) in North Carolina (authors of the scales). Click here to learn more about the authors of the scales and view additional resources on their website. ERSI provides national-scale resources, while the Quality Advancement Team provides state-specific information. In addition to providing products and services to our ECE communties, a large part of a Quality Advancement Specialist's role is to maintain Colorado Shines assessor's reliability in the Environment Rating Scales.
