Compendium of Quality Rating Systems and Evaluations

Kathryn Tout, Rebecca Starr, Margaret Soli, Shannon Moodie, Gretchen Kirby, Kimberly Boller
January 2010

The purpose of the compendium is to provide definitions, description and an analytic framework for assessing the critical elements of QRS and QRS evaluations. The compendium highlights programmatic and evaluation elements and provides matrices to facilitate comparison of these elements.

The compendium also offers an analytic assessment of certain QRS elements. Some specific attention is focused on the ways in which states address issues of culture, language and ability within their determinations of quality.
