How Much Is Enough? Evaluating Intervention Implementation Efficiently
Fritz, Ronda; Harn, Beth; Biancarosa, Gina; Lucero, Audrey; Flannery, K. Brigid
Assessment for Effective Intervention, v44 n2 p135-144 Mar 2019
This study investigated the use of brief observations to measure implementation of small group interventions using the Quality of Intervention Delivery and Receipt (QIDR) tool. Videos of 10-min segments representing the beginning, middle, and end of each 30-min intervention lesson were coded for implementation. Results indicated that (a) reliability can be achieved when observing a portion of a lesson; (b) QIDR scores obtained from 10-min segments are significantly correlated with the 30-min observations; and (c) post hoc analysis indicate the tool may be sensitive to changes in implementation quality at the intervention group level across time. Implications for research and practice are discussed, including the utility of shorter observations to increase the monitoring of intervention implementation to potentially improve outcomes.
