Communication Supporting Classroom Observation Tool

Communication Supporting Classroom Observation Tool

The CSC Observation Tool was developed as part of the Better Communication Research Programme. It is based on a detailed review of the research literature regarding what aspects of the classroom support the development of communication. The CSC Observation Tool for children in reception and Key Stage 1 was then developed and trialled in over 100 reception/KS1 classrooms.

For full details of the development of the CSC Observation tool see the technical report.

We are working with the Communication Trust to support policy and practice using the evidence for the BCRP. The CSC Observation Tool is one aspect of this. The Communication Trust will publish the CSC Observation Tool shortly. In the interim, the Tool can be downloaded from here:
