Two years after participating in a replication of the Stallings Effective Use of Time (EUOT) Program, ten teachers were re-observed and interviewed to determine the extent to which they had maintained the measured changes in their behavior patterns. Subjects were selected for the follow-up from a 27 EUOT teacher sample based on having exhibited substantially more, or substantially less than average pre-to post-workshop desired behavioral change. On the behavioral variable, All Academic Statements, both relatively high and low implementers remained somewhat above their pre-workshop means. Neither group remained significantly improved on the aggregated variable, Organizing/ Off-Task Behaviors. Interviews revealed that two years after training the high implementers recalled more specific, behavioral recommendations than did teachers who two years previously had been low implementers. The implications of these findings for research and practice are discussed.
