Explanation of the CATME Five Teamwork Dimensions
The Five CATME Teamwork Dimensions are used as criteria for CATME peer evaluation surveys. These teamwork dimensions are based on years of research on team member effectiveness. Below are the videos for the dimensions that provide a general overview for each of them in order to help instructors and students gain a better understanding of CAMTE’s model of teamwork.
- Contributing to the Team’s Work
- Interacting with Teammates
- Keeping the Team on Track
- Expecting Quality
- Having Relevant Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities
To learn more about these teamwork skills, go to our CATME Five Teamwork Dimensions page.
Peer Evaluation Practice Exercises
CATME provides two practice exercises students can complete to help them better understand how to rate their teammates using the CATME Teamwork Rating Scale. We recommend that you walk through one of the exercises with your students using the corresponding video and worksheet and have them work individually, in pairs, or in groups/teams to complete the other one, which then can be used as a homework grade. We also recommend that you give your students a copy of the CATME Teamwork Rating Scale to show them the different criteria for each rating. Below are the videos and worksheets to both exercises as well as the CATME Teamwork Rating Scale.

The CATME Rater Practice Program is a game-based rating simulation that provides students the opportunity to practice rating their peers. Rater Practice is a great tool that instructors can use to follow up on the Peer Evaluation Practice Exercises to further help their students improve in rating their team members.
