Data Collection and Evaluation

Nevada's Integrated Data System

Nevada’s Silver State Stars adopted an integrated Q-Star data system that allowed the following QRIS teams to communicate and track progress: 1) the administration and quality rating team, which managed the project and assigned star ratings; 2) the assessment team; 3) the coaching team, which used the system to track their activities and build quality improvement plans based on the assessments conducted; and 4) the research and evaluation team, which used the data gathered by the system to analyze the efficacy of services delivered and quality improvement over time. The Q-Star system linked to an Environment Rating Scales (ERS) data system for mobile assessment used to conduct ERS assessments and EasyFolio, which served as a portal for program applicants to manage their application process. The Q-Star system was developed for Nevada by the Branagh Information Group (BIG).
