Preparing an Intervention for NREPP Submission and Potential Review

Page 15 of 20

For each accepted intervention, the quality of the research supporting its evidence base is evaluated by two external reviewers with specific expertise in the area of the intervention. The identity of these reviewers is not known to SAMHSA or program developers. The reviewers independently rate each significant behavioral outcome using six Quality of Research (QOR) criteria:

  1. Reliability of measures
  2. Validity of measures
  3. Intervention fidelity
  4. Missing data and attrition
  5. Potential confounding variables
  6. Appropriateness of analysis

Further description and value labels for these six criteria can be found on the Quality of Research Web page.
