Contextual fit for behavioral support plans: A model for A Goodness-of-fit

Albin and colleagues make the argument that interventions are more likely to be adopted and implemented if they is a good contextual fit between the context of implementation and the intervention.

Effects of Acceptability on Teachers' Implementation of Curriculum-Based Measurement and Student Achievement in Mathematics Computation

Acceptability is a proxy measure of how well an intervention fits into the context of the intervention setting.

Increasing treatment fidelity by matching interventions to contextual variables within the educational setting

The impact of an intervention is influenced by how well it fis into the context of a classroom.  This paper suggests a number of variables to consider and how they might be measured prior to the development of an intervention.

Implementation, context and complexity

Implementation of an intervention always occurs in a specific context.  This papers considers the complexity that context contributes to implementation science.
