  • Lead and organize the logistics around scheduling and conducting all observations
  • Conduct a 4 cycle observation process with highly trained and skilled observers

A Quicker Way to CLASS Implementation

CLASS Observation Services The Way You Need It

Remote-Virtual Observations

Are you limited to how many people can be in your learning setting? This CLASS observation service allows a certified observer to join a live-stream video of your in-person learning setting to observe and code educator-child interactions.

Video-Coded Observations

Do you prefer to send us your own learning setting video? With Video-Coded observations, you video record your learning settings and send us the footage for one of our expert CLASS observers to code. We provide guidance on how to capture the best learning setting video.

In-Person Live Observations

Skip the technology and hire the experts. Bring a Teachstone-certified CLASS observer to your learning setting to observe and code educator-child interactions.
