Time analysis codes: Decision is based on what 51% of the observed students are doing at the time.

M = Management

Time when most students (over 50%) are not receiving instruction or involved in lesson activity (e.g., changing activities, getting out or putting away equipment, listening to behavior rules or reminder).

A = Activity

Time when most students (over 50%) are involved in physical movement (e.g., catching a ball, throwing at a target, running).

I - Instruction

Time when most students (over 50%) are receiving information about how to move or perform a skill (e.g., how to move using all the space, watching a demonstration, listening to instructions).

W = Waiting

Time when most students (over 50%) are not involved in the other categories (e.g., group activity but only one or two are participating, waiting for a turn, off-task behavior, waiting for the teacher to give directions).

Percent of M time =                                         110  ÷  728                                             =         15    %      

        TOTAL M seconds         TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of A time =                                           290  ÷ 728                                              =         40     %      

        TOTAL A seconds         TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of I time =                                         240  ÷ 728                                              =         33        %      

        TOTAL I seconds         TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of W time =                                           80  ÷ 728                                              =         11        %

Grade:

Management < 15% = 1 pt.

Activity > 50% = 2 pts.

Instruction < 30% = 1 pt.

Waiting < 5% = 1 pt.                                                         Total Score (M+A+I+W)= 1
