This report documents the culmination of ten years of development of a new approach to improving human service systems, organizations, and outcomes. Based on the Active Implementation Frameworks, intensive support is provided to develop implementation and scaling infrastructures in state education systems to initiate and mange change processes, and to provide reliable supports for improved...
Category: Systemic Change
Case Example: Changing State Education Systems
A decade ago, the importance of implementation science was recognized by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and led to the development of what is now the State Implementation and Scaling up of Evidence-Based Programs (SISEP) Center. The design of SISEP’s work in state education systems is based on the...
Eradication of Smallpox & Implementation
The approaches to implementation and scaling outlined in the Active Implementation Frameworks (Fixsen, Blase, & Van Dyke, 2019) have been used to conduct a post hoc analysis of the eradication of smallpox as described by William Foege in the book House on Fire (Foege, 2011).

OSEP Case Example
OSEP funded the State Implementation and Scaling up of Evidence-based Programs Center (SISEP) began in October 2007 to improve services to and outcomes for students with disabilities.
Implementation Capacity “Look Fors”
The "Look For" indicators pose key implementation-related questions; questions that relate to factors essential to systemic and sustainable change in complex systems.
OSEP Guidance and Review Tool
OSEP is using implementation practice and science to move government from compliance to support.
Measures of Implementation in Practice Implementation Climate Assessment
The Implementation Climate Assessment helps assure a complete view of implementation progress within the organization at one or more points in time.
Implementation Quotient for Organizations
The Implementation Tracker was developed to track implementation progress over many years, and to track the return on investing in implementation capacity.
Implementation Research: A Synthesis of the Literature
This monograph reports the findings from a review of the science of implementation and identifies what it will take to transmit innovative programs and practices to human services. The monograph also summarizes findings from the review of the research literature on implementation and proposes frameworks for understanding effective implementation processes
