Readiness for Dissemination Ratings by Criteria (0.0-4.0 scale)
External reviewers independently evaluate the intervention's Readiness for Dissemination
using three criteria:
- Availability of implementation materials
- Availability of training and support resources
- Availability of quality assurance procedures
For more information about these criteria and the meaning of the ratings, see Readiness for Dissemination.
Training and Support
The Replication Guide provides clear rationale and direction for implementing the intervention, covering all the core components, staffing requirements, logistics, participant referral processes and resources, and fidelity measures. The Replication Guide correlates well with the training manuals, which are comprehensive and include examples and tips for delivery. Information on implementation and training options and pricing are provided on the program Web site. Fidelity issues are discussed during the required on-site implementation training. The Evaluation Manual provides a comprehensive overview of the evaluation process and available outcome monitoring tools. It also offers tips on how to introduce these tools to participants to achieve a high response rate.
With the exception of the Children's Activity Manual, the implementation and training materials are largely text-based, containing few graphics and multimedia elements. It is unclear how the data derived from the quality assurance tools can be used to improve program delivery.
