Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v23 n4 p502 Sum 2009
Fidelity measurement has increasing significance when making claims of educational practices being effective in today's classrooms. This study explored the reliability, using multi-informants, and convergent validly, using multi-sources, for curriculum fidelity. There were significant differences between the outside observer and teacher and educational coordinator scores. Observer fidelity scores were moderately related to the observed classroom interactions. (Contains 4 tables and 2 charts.)
