Walking into your first live CLASS observation can be scary. It’s different from coding in a training session or on your own during the reliability test.
But everyone starts somewhere. Even our most experienced observers were once novices. Thankfully, one of our awesome CLASS Specialists, Rebecca Danis, shared a few tips on what to do before and during your first observation. Keep this list handy before you walk into your first one.
Practice really does make perfect and the more you observe, the more comfortable you'll feel doing live observations on your own. If you have any questions about observing, send us an email!
