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 program Web site describes the five-step implementation process and offers links to a variety of materials and tools that could be adapted by a potential implementer. Numerous surveys and focus-group outlines are provided to help measure the intervention's impact. The online guide provided also devotes a chapter to outcome measurement and offers recommendations to future implementers on developing appropriate evaluations.
While the implementation materials describe in general terms what program components are required for replication, adapting the program in other localities may be difficult because all of the materials are specific to the development site (University of Arizona). No structured training program is offered for prospective implementers, and no ongoing training or mentoring is provided for campuses in the process of implementing the program. Intervention fidelity standards are not explicit. No guidance is provided for using or interpreting results from the included survey instruments.
