The quality of each preschool classroom is monitored on an ongoing basis by trained LAUP assessors. Using the CLASS and ERS tools, LAUP assessors perform yearly evaluations, which are consistent across programs and are used by teachers and program coaches as a basis for goal-setting and growth.
Research & Evaluation uses the results of these evaluations to track, predict, and support quality performance.
