about us

is the first hybrid observation and game-based assessment system for educators working with children birth to five years of age. Federal and state programs fund over 2.2 million children in Head Start and Pre-K programs. CTB’s platform enables teachers to save time and use assessment data to track student progress across the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework and state Early Learning Guidelines. Current assessment practices are a burden for teachers and do not give them adequate data to inform instruction. CTB has the opportunity to change this by providing a low-cost solution that can reduce assessment time, provide more reliable data, and help teachers to make data-informed instructional decisions.
