Jim Bovaird, MAP Academy co-director, led the first presentation of the MAP Academy’s Spring 2023 Methodology Applications Series, titled “Treatment Fidelity from a Measurement Perspective.”

Treatment fidelity is a multifaceted concept that can be very difficult to measure well. During his presentation, Bovaird drew parallels between treatment fidelity and general psychological and educational measurement, focusing on the concepts of construct explication, reliability, validity and the potential benefits of utilizing treatment fidelity information — or the consequences of failing to do so.
