PreK CLASS® Tool Observation Training
September 7th, 2017
Kristen Kennen, Early Childhood Consultant at EdAdvance, recently completed advanced training on the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®). This observational tool is used to assess quality in preschool classrooms and is based on research indicating that interactions between students and teachers are primary factors in achieving positive child outcomes. The CLASS® tool assesses interactions in three domains: Emotional Support, Classroom Organization, and Instructional Support. Used nationally in Head Start, Connecticut has recently incorporated its use in the Quality Recognition and Improvement System (QRIS). For more information on the CLASS® tool for your classroom, contact Michelle Anderson, Early Childhood & Family Programs Director at 860-567-0863 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
