The Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASSTM) is an observational tool that provides a common lens and language focused on what matters—the classroom interactions that boost student learning.
Data from CLASSTM observations are used to support teachers’ unique professional development needs, set school­ wide goals, and shape system­wide reform at the local, state, and national levels.

Who should attend?

Program Directors, Education Managers/Coordinators, Mentors/Coaches, or anyone else who will conduct CLASS observations in Head Start Classrooms. All participants commit to completing the CLASS Reliability test within six weeks following the conclusion of the training.

Training Format

The Class Observation Reliability Training is a two­ day training that helps you build an in­depth understanding of the CLASSTM observation tool and teaches you how to use the tool to accurately observe and code classrooms.
