Increasing teacher treatment integrity through performance feedback provided by school personnel
If educational programs are to be effective they must be implemented with sufficient integrity to assure benefits. To have a significant impact on schools, solutions must be scalable. This study evaluated the effects of using existing school personnel to provide performance feedback to teachers regarding the quality of implementation.

What Does It Take to Scale Up and Sustain Evidence-Based Practices?
This paper discusses scaling-up of evidence-based practices. The process is defined in which researchers or educators initially implement interventions on a small scale, validate them, and then implement them more widely in real-world conditions.
