Typescript reproduced from the microfilm master In the recent educational reform movement in the United States, many programs have been implemented at the school level. In some of these programs, funds have supported school-initiated improvement efforts at multiple sites. These programs are known as site-managed educational programs. This studywas conducted to propose and test a theoretical model of program implementation for evaluators of site-managed educational programs. The model is useful for (a) expanding our understanding of the variables in the implementation of site-managed educational programs, (b) guiding program evaluators in their selection and investigation of variables for studies of program implementation, (c) helping program evaluators interpret findings of these studies, and (d) providing formative evaluation information for program improvement.
