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
Program manuals flow logically, use clear, simple language, and focus primarily on hands-on learning. Implementation roles are clearly defined. The required training clearly parallels the program curricula. Evaluation of student behavior before and after participation is an integral part of the execution of the program. A fidelity scale is provided to support quality assurance.
Little information is available on how to introduce and manage the program at the organizational level. It is unclear who conducts the training and whether a 1.5-day training is sufficient to train implementers adequately. Very limited information is provided on how implementers should use the fidelity scale and interpret the results.
