After eight years of pilot-testing, updating, and using the TMACT, Version1.0 Revision 3 (2018) is posted for download. Training is strongly encouraged for reliable and valid use of the TMACT, however it is not required. TMACT authors do not currently certify individuals as TMACT trainers. Please contact TMACT authors for training inquiries.
TMACT Summary Scale (1.0rev3) provides an overview of TMACT items and rating anchors. This should be used for reference only, not in conducting a review.
TMACT Protocol Part I (1.0rev3): Introduction provides an overview of the TMACT, but most importantly, guidance in how to prepare, conduct, and follow-up after a TMACT review.
TMACT Protocol Part II (1.0rev3): Itemized Data Collection Forms is what is used to gather needed data and rate a team across all 47 items. Treat Part II as a workbook used to document information and make ratings for a given team. Be sure to check out a very important update to the Rating Guidelines for the Specialist Team here. To qualify for “no rate” option with vacant or newly filled positions, teams must demonstrate an annual staff turnover rate of 39% or less.
TMACT Protocol – Appendix (1.0rev3) includes example forms, letters, and final report sample to support your use of the TMACT. *Note the 1.0rev3 Appendix will be posted shortly.
These items are included in Part II, but may be easier to download here. Please refer to TMACT Part I for instructions in how to use these Chart Review Logs (Log I and Log II) and Chart Review Tally Sheet Log I and Tally Sheet Log 2.
Hard to keep up with exactly what has changed? We understand. We created this Q&A to explain changes made since TMACT 1.0 Revision 1. We also recorded a webinar for you! Part I is nearly 2 hours long and takes you up until about EP6. Part II is about 45 minutes, finishes up with the review AND gives you a sneak peak into eTMACT. PowerPoint Handout here.
eTMACT is currently in development! We are creating a secure, web-based platform for conducting TMACT reviews. eTMACT should reduce the time and resources devoted to a review, while also further improving reliability and validity of item ratings. Stay tuned for more information!
