    Based on the theoretical framework of the Comped study, a hypothesized pathmodel (LISREL) is developed in which important determinants of computer implementation are specified. The purpose of the analyses is to investigate the factors that may explain why some schools are using computers for educative purposes to a greater extent than others. Besides, the results show the interrelatedness of factors that influence computer implementation. The hypothesized model Is tested with data derived from lower secondary schools infive educational systems: Japan, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the USA. This paper presents the hypothesized model and the over-identifiedrecursive path model for each of the analysed educational systems.
