Eval14: Developing a Curriculum Implementation Assessment to Examine Model Fidelity 

11-12-2014 16:27

Power point presentation given at the AEA 2014 Conference in Denver, Colorado, on October 17, 2014. A fundamental need of programs that utilize a standard curriculum is to assess whether or not the curriculum is delivered with fidelity to the intended model. Informed by implementation science, the presenters developed and implemented a curriculum implementation assessment to examine the extent to which an early childhood home visitation program in Pima County, Arizona implements a parenting education curriculum with fidelity. The tools developed assessed the extent that staff training, supervision, and home visitation were implemented with quality and fidelity. The presenters will provide a brief overview of implementation science and review the process of developing five assessment stages and practical application to programs, which include: 1) developing fidelity metrics; 2) developing and testing instruments; 3) collecting and analyzing data; 4) providing feedback in written and oral reports; and 5) using feedback to inform staff development and program improvement strategies.
