The accurate, reliable way to assess teacher–child interactions

For programs serving children from 15–36 months

CLASS logoWith this toddler version of the widely used Classroom Assessment Scoring System® (CLASS®) tool, your early childhood program will have an accurate, reliable way to assess classrooms. For use with children from 15–36 months, the CLASS Toddler tool assesses teacher–child interactions, a primary ingredient of early educational experiences that prepare children for future school success.

This reliable and valid tool:

  • assesses two crucial domains of teacher–child interaction: Emotional and Behavioral Support and Engaged Support for Learning
  • provides developmentally appropriate descriptions of what effective interactions look like in toddler classrooms
  • establishes an accurate picture of classroom interactions through brief, repeated observation and scoring cycles
  • highlights areas of strength and areas for growth useful for guiding improvement efforts
