We’ve partnered with the best in the field.
mCLASS:CIRCLE was developed in collaboration with partners Susan Landry, Ph.D., and the University of Texas Health Science Center’s Children’s Learning Institute (CLI), and is based on CLI’s nationally recognized research.
We offer support every step of the way.
A CIRCLE-certified trainer guides early childhood educators through practices proven effective by CIRCLE research. The training sessions demonstrate how the assessment—combined with observations and grouping—helps create a positive and focused learning environment.
Our teachers don’t want to go back to paper-pencil PALS™. Some of the teachers have said to me, ‘Wow. I didn’t realize it was going to be this easy.’ It’s a really valuable instrument. It even helps us make decisions.
