The mini lesson assessment we do weekly. They’re just an assessment based on our sunshine state standards, and each one has a different standard, so we work through it throughout the week. At the end of the week we have our mini lesson assessment, and we use smart sync as one of our resources.

Of course, some people have the smart responders. Since we have the mobile laptop cart, our students actually use the mobile laptop cart as their response system so they’re able to work through each question. Of course they can use the smart tools to help them work it out, so instead of using scratch paper, they can use the smart tools to help them solve each problem.

The cool thing for me as a teacher is that it automatically grades it. Because there’s a little more prep time, however, once they finish the assessment the question is already graded. So we can look at each question and I look at the percentages. It calculates the percents, and the students enjoy seeing which questions they had correct and the ones that they had wrong.

Note: The TIM is about teaching, not technology. The placement of a lesson on the TIM is based entirely on the teaching practices demonstrated in the lesson and not on the specific technology employed. Effective pedagogy is our concern, not whether the tech involved is the latest, greatest, or most expensive. In fact, most of the sample videos were recorded some time ago as part of the original development of the Technology Integration Matrix. As you view these videos, focus on the teaching practices. When using the TIM-O to observe a lesson, remember that you can display the detailed indicators by clicking the tab on the right if you are completing a Matrix-based observation or are reviewing the TIM profile of a question-based lesson. The TIM Tools Admin Guide contains additional suggestions for observing a lesson and developing a TIM profile.
