What is CLASS?

CLASS is an acronym that stands for the CLassroom Assessment Scoring System. It’s an observational measure that looks at the interactions between teachers and students. These interactions are categorized into three domains (if you work with pre-K through 12th-grade students): Emotional Support, Classroom Organization, and Instructional Support.
