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 =                 30                            ÷                    280                           =         11          %      

        TOTAL M seconds         TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of A time =                 90                            ÷                            280                   =         32          %      

        TOTAL A seconds         TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of I time =                         160                    ÷                            280                   =         57          %      

        TOTAL I seconds         TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of W time =                                 0            ÷                    0                           =         0             %

Grade:

 Management < 15% = 1 pt.

 Activity > 50% = 2 pts.

 Instruction < 30% = 1 pt.

 Waiting < 5% = 1 pt.                                                         Total Score (M+A+I+W)=         2 pts
