NEW! Inclusion Team – The Inclusive Classroom Profile: Staff Training

How well are you implementing quality inclusive practices in early years?  

There is now a comprehensive, field-tested observational tool that uncovers the answers. A one-of-a-kind tool for classrooms serving children aged 2–5, the Inclusive Classroom Profile (ICP™) assesses 12 key practices with the strongest research base for supporting the education and development of young children in inclusive programs.

Training your staff to use the ICP - If you wish to use ICP yourself, training is strongly recommended for reliable, accurate use of the ICP. The current training program includes a face-to-face overview of the ICP administration and scoring procedures and 4 classroom observations with an ICP-qualified trainer to help users meet reliability proficiency.

What does the training consist of and how long does it last? - Reliability training is a 4½-day process and can include up to 3 members of staff. The first day includes a group overview presentation that introduces participants to the ICP measure and prepares reliability participants for the next days of observation training. Days 2–5 are full days. They include morning observations of 2–3 hours followed by an interview with the teacher and documentation review. After a lunch break, the ICP trainer and those being trained meet to score the ICP (individually) and then debrief each item. This afternoon scoring and debriefing typically lasts about 3 hours.

How is reliability determined? - Following the assessments on days 2–5, debriefing occurs. During this time, a consensus score is determined for each item. To achieve a reliability certificate, participants complete all components of the training process and have an average of at least 85% across three observations or at least two individual reliability scores of 90% or higher.
