Answers:

  • Table 1: Characteristics of the agency overall- Site 2 [Paradigmatic]
  • Table 2: Characteristics of the SMI program- Site 2 [Paradigmatic]
  • Table 3: Quality Improvement Systems-Site 1 [Paradigmatic]
  • Table 4: Summary of Internet Survey [Paradigmatic] Though there are two time periods represented, the overall organization of this matrix is fundamentally variable-oriented: it is set up to show what is known about each component, drawing from data collected at different points in time.
  • Table 5: Project Timeline- Site 2 [Syntagmatic]
  • Table 6: Dimensional Summary of Implementation Process- 1st Version [Paradigmatic] 6 would typically be considered paradigmatic, but could be at least partly syntagmatic as well because time is represented in the vertical axis.
  • Table 7: Dimensional Summary of Implementation Process- 2nd Version [Paradigmatic]
