This brief reports on the results of an analysis that addressed two questions concerning a large set of QRIS studies conducted between 2006 and 2016: 1.

What specific features of TR and TA are measured in this research? The remaining sections of this brief discuss: Methods: The scope of QRIS studies and coding scheme used in the analysis; Results: The percent and type of studies that measure specific features of QRIS TR and TA; Discussion and recommendations for state QRIS administrators, researchers, and other stakeholders engaged in building QRIS capacity.
