There are many ways that SMT can be an integral and valuable component to an evaluation plan, filling in the gaps of the usually hard to collect, but critical quantitative indicators of teacher and student actions that contribute to success and learning in the classroom.
SMT is tailored to gathering the data needed to evaluate the effects of professional development on how instructors teach and how lessons are delivered.
SMT is a perfect tool for documenting levels of student engagement or examining the details of student involvement in a large group, small group, or laboratory settings as a result of curricular changes.
SMT can help uncover and sort out the data related to instruction, including the instructor’s use of questioning, responding, wait-time, and discovering their teaching fingerprint.
SMT can also be used to closely examine student actions, providing individual and small group analysis regarding student engagement and misbehaviors.
SMT is a tool that will help the observers and evaluators include factors that often are overlooked when observing teachers and classrooms, simply because the quantitative factors have been too difficult to gather in the past. But now, with SMT, you can include data on the many critical quantitative components to teaching.
