We Have the Tools You Need to Prepare

These programs build CLASS understanding and skills for improved interactions between teachers and children.  CLASS stands for Classroom Assessment Scoring System. It is a research-based method of measuring, evaluating and improving teacher-child interactions.  CLASS is also the most widely-used system for assessing and improving teaching quality.

In the CDA with CLASS programs, you’ll find authentic classroom videos to demonstrate best practices that you can immediately apply in your own classroom. We include the Competency Standards book (a $25 value), needed to prepare and apply for your CDA. You’ll also receive access to our CLASS Learning Community where you can ask questions and benefit from peer-to-peer discussions.
