CLassroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS)
We improve learning from birth to high school by making teachers more effective in their interactions with students. We do this using proven approaches to classroom observation and educator professional development. Our attention to quality control, high fidelity implementation, and support for users is fundamental to our impact.
