Maintaining Fidelity

How to Maintain Program Fidelity
Fidelity is the strict adherence to principles, thus creating the successful
reproduction of results. Without a strict commitment to concepts learned in your certification training and to the flow of the curricula, fidelity cannot be possible. Fidelity is important to the success and longevity of your program. Without fidelity, there is no way of knowing what is working or not working with your program. Research is impossible without program fidelity.

Ways to Maintain Program Fidelity

Follow the flow of the curricula (do not ignore the activities or opportunities for role-playing)
Use Cog Talk
Use Pre/Post Tests
Monitor facilitators using the Facilitator Evaluation Form
