Gamse, Beth; Millsap, Mary Ann; Goodson, Barbara
Peabody Journal of Education, v77 n4 p146-66 2002
Examines the relationship between meaningful program implementation and capacity to assess the impact of James P. Comer's School Development Program in a large-scale study, describing how the impact study became an implementation study because of such factors as changes in study design, disappearing treatment, difficulties implementing randomized designs, variable program implementation, shifting target, shifting baseline, and difficulties obtaining informed consent. Recommendations for addressing implementation challenges are included. (SM)
