The Program Assessment Center uses two sets of tools to conduct classroom assessments:

  1. Environment Rating Scales (ERS)
    We currently use three ERS tools, depending on the age of children and the child care setting:
       The Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale-Revised
       The Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale-Revised
      The Family Day Care Rating Scale-Revised
  2. Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS)
    We currently use three CLASS tools, depending on the age of children:

    Infant CLASS


    Toddler CLASS


    Pre-K CLASS
