Tips on Training Staff on the Desired Results System Acknowledge and validate program staff’s hesitancy and resistance to change. Help them effectively learn how to use the DR tools to improve the quality of care in your program. Provide training time for staff to practice observing children’s activities and interactions, writing objective anecdotal notes, and reflecting on their observations for rating the DRDP-R. Share that the Desired Results System’s evaluation tools are designed to reveal “snapshots” of each child, classroom, and the entire program to adjust and inform instruction to move children forward to meet Desired Results. Each tool identifies unique strengths and areas of improvement. Complete the DRDP- R two times annually. Effective education and care professionals are already observing, gathering evidence and documentation to demonstrate children’s knowledge and skills. Post information about DR terms, the six Desired Results for children and families, DRDP- R Indicators, Measures and Developmental Levels around classrooms or in staff meeting rooms so that the staff can become familiar with them, at a glance and over time.
