Free CAN Tools and Resources to Support Continuous Quality Improvement
The Crosswalk Between the Quality Standards for Expanded Learning and Program Quality Assessment Tools outlines a number of available tools for quality assessment and improvement, including a matrix indicating the degree to which each tool supports assessment of the Quality Standards. The California After School Program Quality Self-Assessment Tool was found to have a high level of alignment with the quality standards. The Tool, User Guide and online training outline how to use the tool as part of a continuous quality improvement (CQI) process. In addition, CAN has created a series of videos describing each section of the Tool, and a series of webinars and a guide describing promising practices related to each section of the tool. These resources, along with the The High School After School Quality Self-Assessment Rubric and corresponding videos are freely available for programs to utilize as part of a process of continuous quality improvement (CQI).
