CATME SMARTER Teamwork is offering a training package to help instructors more effectively explain the CATME system to students. These materials are designed to complement our CATME Tools in order to gain a better understanding of CATME’s model of teamwork. This can assist instructors in calibrating student's abilities to evaluate one another. If you have any questions regarding this material, please direct your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CATME Teamwork Dimension Modules
The CATME Teamwork Dimension Modules are a great resource to become familiar with CATME's teamwork model. These videos provide an overview in each teamwork dimension in order to help instructors and students gain an understanding of the criteria our peer evaluations use. They have been successfully implemented at Purdue's University's main campus in their introductory engineering courses, and have proven an effective method to introduce students to CATME in class and as homework.

CATME Rating Scale
The CATME Rating Scale is a useful handout for instructors and students who need a clear and concise way to view the CATME Dimensions and the criteria associated with them. In our experience, students have a much harder time differentiating the top-performing team members from average team members. This scale helps to emphasis the criteria that our teamwork model is based on. It excels as a compliment to taking a peer evaluation survey and can serve as a quick reminder to students when they are evaluating their peers.

The CATME Rater Practice Program is a game-based rating simulation that provides students the opportunity to practice rating their peers. In this simulation, students are given hypothetical teammates with certain traits to them. These traits represent behaviors that regular teammates could possess. They are then tasked with rating these teammates according to the 5 CATME dimensions. At the end of the simulation, students are given immediate feedback on their ratings and ways to improve their feedback.
