Observation Guidelines Oregon’s QRIS recognizes the uniqueness of family-based programs and, therefore, has identified a variety of observation methods to best capture adult-child interactions in this setting. The following table lists the variety of observation methods and scoring criteria for LD11 and LD12 that may be used in family-based programs. Once a family-based program’s 5-star portfolio has been submitted and has met a sufficient number of standards at the 5-star level, the Teaching Research Institute (TRI) will contact the program to arrange for an on-site observation. At that time TRI will determine which observation method(s) is most appropriate given the number and ages of children present on the scheduled day of the observation.
