Abstract: This study explores factors related to successful implementation of the GLOBE science education program through an examination of outcomes related to professional development (PD), technical support, and resource provision. We analyzed results from a survey of 454 teachers served by 28 different PD providers using a 2-level hierarchical linear model. Results support findings from earlier studies about the importance of teachers' perceptions of coherence with their own and their district goals for student learning and the value of active learning strategies. At the same time, our models indicate that the correlates of effective PD vary for different outcomes, and that for program implementation equipment and technical support are critical factors. The results provide guidance for researchers and innovation developers seeking to better understand the conditions which foster implementation, scalability, and sustainability.
