Summary

Paraprofessional programs in the schools of a metropolitan district were studied to test a theory about factors related to successful implementation of organizational innovation. Indices of variables were constructed from items on two questionnaires administered to a stratified random sample of paraprofessionals, teachers, and administrators. The analysis showed how paraprofessional clarity, willingness, ability, resources, and school compatibility were predictive of differences in the implementation of the programs. The study demonstrates how data gathered during educational evaluations can be used to explore general social science theories that are of value to education. (Author)
