Early Childhood Professional Credential 2.0 Scoring Updates

The Colorado Shines Professional Development Information System (PDIS) vendor pushed an update to the credential scoring calculation on May 15, 2018. This update may have caused an inaccurate calculation of PDIS credential levels and expiration dates. Because of this update, inaccurate credential information may have been displayed in PDIS from May 15, 2018 to June 19, 2018. The PDIS credential screens were disabled on June 19, 2018 to prevent further inaccurate information from displaying. 

As of July 24, 2018, the PDIS vendor resolved the inaccurate credential scoring issue and the PDIS credential functionality screens were enabled. The resolution of this credential scoring issue may have impacted the scoring and expiration date of some credentials. The information that displays in PDIS is now accurate based upon the current credential scoring logic that has been implemented to the system.   

To support our users that may have experienced a drop in credential level and/or credential date change because of the new credential scoring logic, we will:

  • Accept the previous credential level and date prior to the updates, which is May 14, 2018. 
  • Provide a copy of the credential information, prior to the updates, if needed. (Pre-Update Early Childhood Credential 2.0) 

**If you need a copy of your credential that reflects the credential information prior to the updates, please contact the PDIS team at 1.844.447.4441, option 2 or email** 

We understand that the credential is a very important part of program quality rating and professional qualifications. We value and recognize your effort and achievement that you have gained with a credential. To better understand the credential scoring, please reference the Early Childhood Professional Credential Worksheet and other Credential information, available here.

We realize the impact of this and apologize for any problems this has caused. If you still have further questions or concerns, please contact the PDIS team at 1.844.447.4441, option 2 or email
