An Exploratory Comparison of Three Treatment Fidelity Assessment Methods (OS264)

  • PMD: 1,2
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify best practices in using treatment fidelity assessments to inform the plan implementation phase of consultation.
  2. summarize the exploratory study conducted to compare the utility of using time sampling and event recording in comparison to the traditional postobservation checklist method.
  3. consider which method of treatment fidelity assessment is appropriate for their practical context.

Description

Treatment fidelity is most often evaluated by checklists of intervention steps after an observation session. Less explored approaches may involve adoption of direct observation methods including time sampling or event recording. This presentation will review a study to evaluate the utility of using time sampling and event recording in comparison to the traditional postobservation checklist method. Implications for future treatment fidelity assessment research and consultation practice are described.
