This data-based manuscript introduces an original measure used to guide districts in how to create a sustainable system to support high fidelity implementation of EBPS. Data from an expert review process, content validity, test-retest reliability and fidelity data are included.
Duda, M.A., & Kloos, E. (prepared). From the Classroom to Capital. Assessing and Building Implementation Capacity to Scale and Sustain School-wide Positive Behavior Supports. This data-based manuscript provides the first known example of a description of both intervention data (PBIS) and implementation data at the classroom, school, district, and state levels. The interconnections of these components and how they link to student outcomes are shared.
Duda, M.A. & Clarke, S. (prepared). What have we Learned about Treatment Integrity over the past Two Decades? A Review of its Definition, Utility, and Application in the field of Early Childhood/Early Childhood Special Education. This data-based manuscript documents a systematic literature review of learning how Treatment Integrity is defined, reported and applied in practical settings. Findings show that there are only a handful of studies in the published literature that link child outcomes to adult behaviors (implementation). Challenges and recommendations for improving fidelity are described.
