Mostly, the problems that come about with change from the CBAM perspective have to do with, not so much that the innovation is not well designed or not effective, but rather it's use is not at the highest level right from the beginning, and so those are the aspects that you want to improve. Before you can assess the effectiveness of an innovation, you have to make sure that the innovation is being used. Levels of Use, or LoU, uses an interview protocol to measure the behaviors of the users -- to identify the extent to which they are using the innovation. The LoU dimension measures eight distinct Levels of Use. Level 0: Nonuse - The individual has little or no knowledge of the innovation, has no involvement with it, and is doing nothing toward becoming involved. Level 1: Orientation - The individual has acquired or is acquiring information about the innovation. Level 2: Preparation - The individual is preparing to use the innovation for the first time. Level 3: Mechanical Use - The user is focused on day-to-day use of the innovation and on mastering the tasks required to use the innovation. Mechanical use is often disjointed and superficial. Level 4A: Routine - The user has stabilized the ongoing use of the innovation and is making few, if any, changes. Level 4B: Refinement - The user is refining the use of the innovation in order to increase the impact it has on students. Level 5: Integration - The user is combining efforts with colleagues in order to have a collective impact on students. Level 6: Renewal - The user seeks major modifications or alternatives to the current innovation in order to increase its effectiveness and maximize the impact it has on students.
