This paper reports the results of a study into the conditions that facilitate the implementation of instructional innovations. One hundred seventy-nine participants completed an online instrument designed to determine the relative importance of eight conditions shown to facilitate implementation. This paper describes the construction and testing of the instrument and the value of its role in measuring implementation profiles. Means and standard deviations of profile scores are reported for the overall sample, by gender and by occupational groups. A factor analysis was conducted to determine if the eight conditions had any underlying relationship. The results from this analysis produced four factors. The discussion describes the four factors as well as additional research questions that result from the findings. (Contains 5 tables.)
