Self-Assessment (PBC-PQA Basics)
and evaluation can supply a wealth of valuable information about the quality of
your program. Program self-assessment is a best practice designed for
continuous improvement. Prime Time’s Program Self-Assessment Training is a
two-part training, which prepares you to assess the quality of your own
program. Commitment is required for both training dates. In the first part of
the training participants will explore the Palm Beach County-Program Quality
Assessment tool (PBC-PQA) “quality construct” to help participants develop keen
observation and note-taking skills to generate objective and precise anecdotal
evidence, and learn how to use and score the PBC-PQA. To get the most out of
the training, participants will be required to complete a program
self-assessment following this session.
