NCTL Time Analysis Tools

APA developed the Classroom Time Analysis Tool, and the School Time Analysis Tool for the National Center on Time and Learning (NCTL), a non-profit dedicated to expanding learning time to improve student achievement and enable a well-rounded education. These interactive web-based tools enable teachers and school leaders to analyze how time is being used within their school year and within a specific lesson. The data provided by the tools can be manipulated to model how changing elements of the school calendar, such as length of day or transition time, effects the amount of instructional time students receive. The models built on excel spreadsheets developed by NCTL, and APA helped translate these into online tools that can be also be utilized on mobile devices.
