Providing the Implementation Fidelity Logs and asking each educator to complete one after teaching each lesson in Puberty: The Wonder Years creates a system of accountability for teaching the lessons. Administrators can review the logs to ensure that the lessons are being implemented as they were approved by the school’s leadership.
Record of Adaptations & Modifications
Educators are experts at adapting curriculum to meet the needs of their students and their culture. Modifications are often made for students with special learning needs. Use of the Implementation Fidelity Logs provides educators a way to describe any adaptations and modifications to their lessons and explain how the lesson worked with those changes. That way, lessons can be fine-tuned and improved each subsequent year.
Interpretation of Evaluation Results
To document effectiveness, curriculum evaluation is vital. The Pre- and Post-Tests are available to help with evaluation. Evaluation results, positive or negative, can be interpreted by reviewing the Implementation Fidelity Logs to see if lessons were omitted or changed in some way that made an impact on student outcomes.
