Readiness for Dissemination Ratings by Criteria (0.0-4.0 scale)
External reviewers independently evaluate the intervention's Readiness for Dissemination
using three criteria:
- Availability of implementation materials
- Availability of training and support resources
- Availability of quality assurance procedures
For more information about these criteria and the meaning of the ratings, see Readiness for Dissemination.
Training and Support
Clear and detailed information on how this program can be implemented is provided. The materials have been developed so that individuals of varying skill levels can deliver the program. Because implementation directions are clear, training requirements are minimal. Training is available in person, by phone, and online. The survey used to collect data on student perceptions and behaviors is specific and well designed. The self-evaluation form is concise and easy to understand.
Little information is provided on how to integrate this program into existing operations and how to manage it once it is implemented. The materials do not address implementation challenges or adaptations to diverse settings. Although training is required for all implementers, the training materials provided did not include a curriculum to ensure that all sites receive standardized implementation guidance. Little information is provided on how to use data collected from students. Tools to support quality assurance and program fidelity are limited and are primarily self-administered.
