Time sampling is a way to collect information by recording what happens at different time intervals. The EduSnap Classroom Observation Measure is a minute-by-minute view of how children experience their classrooms. During data collection users observe a target child for 30 seconds then spend a 30 second coding period to record the EduSnap codes that were present during the observation period. The classroom observation is a continuous cycle of 30 seconds of observation followed by 30 seconds of coding. At the end of the observation users receive graphs and tables describing how children spent their time throughout the observation.
