Document Number: 9912Staff Preparation, Reward, and Support - This brief examines the extent to which QRIS provide incentives to increase or improve four critical elements: staff qualifications, professional development, compensation and benefits and workplace environment. They found that QRIS tend to put more emphasis on the first two issues than the others. Also, while most QRIS require some structural components that create a supportive workplace (e.g., staff meetings, professional development plans, etc.), only five require programs to provide paid time for inservice training and only three require opportunities for collaborative planning with colleagues.
