Reliability Test Results for an Implementation Profile Instrument.
Porter, Barry E.; Surry, Daniel W.; Ensminger, David C.
This test-retest reliability study was conducted to test the reliability of an instrument designed to measure the relative importance of eight implementation conditions. Data for the Ensminger-Surry Implementation Profile Instrument (ESIP) were gathered starting January 2003. Participants were from a variety of occupations. Ages ranged from the early 20s through the middle 50s. The main goal of the ESIP is to determine the relative importance of eight conditions that have been shown to facilitate the implementation of an innovation. The testing took place in a test-retest format with approximately a 2-week interval between test sessions. Participants were graduate students in education in the classes of three professors. The study resulted in statistically significant correlations on each of the eight dimensions for both forms. Findings show high test-retest reliability for one form and fairly strong test-retest reliability for the other form investigated. (SLD)
