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 =                                               20        ÷    1490  = 1 %

TOTAL M seconds 20       TOTAL LESSON seconds 1490

Percent of A time =                             930 ÷    1490  =   62  %

TOTAL A seconds 930        TOTAL LESSON seconds   1490

Percent of I time =              420   ÷    1490  = 28 %

TOTAL I seconds 420           TOTAL LESSON seconds 1490

Percent of W time =           120        ÷        1490   =  8 %

TOTAL W seconds 120   TOTAL LESSON seconds 1490
