The accurate, reliable way to assess teacher–child interactions

For programs serving children from 15–36 months

Classroom Assessment Scoring System™ (CLASS™)With 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:

  • establishes an accurate picture of classroom interactions through brief, repeated observation and scoring cycles
