The kicked rotator is used to show how to apply the formalism of Wigner symbols to the study of quantum dynamics. This approach provides a simple and direct method of comparing quantum and classical dynamics. The leading quantum effects are examined in detail for small values of h-bar and discuss the time scales at which quantum effects appear.
