The Classroom Strategies Assessment System [CSAS] is a user friendly classroom observation instrument that enhances teachers’ effective classroom practices in two domains: Instructional Strategies and Classroom Behavioral Management Strategies. The Classroom Strategies Assessment System supports teacher growth and professional development by facilitating the use of effective instructional and classroom behavioral management practices linked to positive student learning outcomes. Both administrators and teachers can use the CSAS in a collaborative process to dialogue about effective practice, guide targeted professional development, and ultimately enhance the quality of instruction present in each classroom.
Developed as part of a U. S. Dept. of Education Institute of Educational Sciences grant in collaboration with scholarship from Rutgers University, the Classroom Strategies Assessment System generates information that is empirically valid, practical, and useful for guiding teacher professional development. CSAS scores help administrators and teachers:
