Title: The development and implementation of the Levels of Use Observational Inventory (LoUOI): An instrument to aid in the adoption of an innovation process
Author(s): Colbert, J.
Year: 1977
Journal/Publication: National Association for Research in Science Teaching
Abstract: Little research has explored the affective and behavioral changes teachers experience when implementing a new curriculum, or "innovation." The article describes the development and implementation of an observational instrument for measuring teachers' degree of innovation, called the Levels of Use Observational Inventory (LoUOI). The instrument includes seven levels of innovation, and is informed by the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) theory of the process of change. Thirty-three elementary school teachers were observed while teaching a new science curriculum, and their implementation was assessed using the LoUOI. The study findings suggest that a valid and reliable assessment of teachers' innovation level can be obtained through observation of their teaching. The results of the LoUOI instrument can be helpful in improving teacher training in new curricula.
