Lee, Y. J. (2009, November). The fidelity of implementation of an innovative science program in a secondary school (Report No. OER 14/08 LYJ). National Institute of Education (Singapore), Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice.
"We wanted to determine the Fidelity of Implementation(FOI) of an innovative school-based science curriculum-SciencePlus-in Chester Secondary in Singapore (all pseudonyms). Although program or outcome evaluations have dominated attention, our research confirms the importance of implementation evaluation through FOI in order for a discipline to advance. Among other things, FOI criteria (dosage, quality of delivery, adherence, participant responsiveness) can both characterize and narrow the separation between program intent and actual implementation. Hence, we examined the curricular adaptations and contingencies that mediated the SciencePlus curriculum." -- p. 2.
