A Survey Investigating School Psychologists' Measurement of Treatment Integrity in School-Based Interventions and Their Beliefs about Its Importance
Cochrane, Wendy S.; Laux, John M.
Psychology in the Schools, v45 n6 p499-507 Jul 2008
A survey of individuals holding the Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) credential was conducted via the Internet to gather information regarding their measurement of treatment integrity in school-based interventions and their beliefs about its importance. A sample of 806 self-selected professionals holding the NCSP credential provided data about the extent to which they measure treatment integrity and the methods they used to measure it when developing interventions via one-to-one and group/team consultation. Results showed that 97.6% agreed that measurement of treatment integrity was a key factor to consider and to include when evaluating interventions and when using intervention data for special education eligibility decisions. Few, however, reported regularly documenting it in one-to-one (only 11.3%) or group/team consultation (only 1.9%). Recommendations for how school psychologists and other school staff can increase their measurement of treatment integrity in school-based interventions are offered. (Contains 1 table.)
