Stage one synthesized the components and indicators based on documentary study and an interview of experts. Seven experts examined and validated the content of components and indicators. Stage two evaluated the indicators and presented them to seven experts to evaluated suitability and possibility. They were then analyzed to find means, standard deviation of each indicator. The indicators were then corrected based on the recommendations by experts. Stage three analyzed confirmatory components of indicators. The samples were 500 teachers of the secondary schools under the Office of the Secondary Education Service Area 29. They were derived by a multistage random sampling. The research instruments were an interview, an evaluation, and an indicator verification form Statistics were means, standard deviation and an analysis of confirmatory components.

Learning management were suitable and possible at the highest level ( = 4.91, 4.74) 3). It was also found that the model in measuring the quality classroom management was in conformity with empirical data withc2=2156.369, df= 1672, p = .056, CFI = 0.996, TLI = 0.990, RMSEA = 0.033, SRMR = 0.035 และ c2/ df = 1.289.
