Examining the role of social validity for promoting the effective adoption and implementation of school-based interventions.
Teachers are regularly expected to adopt and deliver new interventions within the classroom. However, although many of these interventions are evidence-based and have been demonstrated to be effective when piloted, they often fail to achieve the expected outcomes when implemented in the real-life context of the classroom. Implementation science has identified multiple factors that may challenge effective implementation, including barriers relating to characteristics of the intervention, the implementers, and the school environment (Durlak and Du Pre, 2008).
This presentation uses a model of social validity (Wolf, 1978; Harrison et al, 2016) to draw together the key factors affecting implementation and to explore the reasons for English primary school teachers’ incomplete adoption and delivery of the Second Step intervention (Lendrum, 2016). It asks questions about the potential for the model to be usefully extended to predict levels of implementation pre-adoption of an intervention (State et al, 2017), and the extent to which this data may then be used to optimise effective implementation and the achievement of the intended outcomes.
