Fidelity of Implementation

Too Good programs are evidence-based universal interventions that have undergone rigorous evaluation to establish their effectiveness. Once a program has established effectiveness, program implementation determines how likely the intended outcomes are achieved. An intervention delivered with fidelity to the implementation model refers to the degree to which facilitators remain faithful to the program design throughout program delivery.

The program design includes the delivery methods, activities and materials, intensity and dosage of the program, and other core components that make the program effective.
