The Usage Rating Profile (URP) includes a suite of instruments designed to assess factors that can influence implementation of innovations. Based on a history grounded in the value of measuring “social validity” toward understanding implementation (or lack thereof), the instruments are comprised of items that assess dimensions such as acceptability, feasibility, understanding, and collaboration. Developed with a focus on school-based contexts, items remain consistent across instruments yet are modified for use across a variety of assessment and intervention innovations. Designed to be completed by a range of stakeholders (school personnel, parents, interventionists, students), the URP instruments have been used by practitioners, researchers, consultants, and other mental health and educational professionals to inform decision-making.
On this website, you can find additional information on the history and empirical foundations of URP development; articles, presentations, and examples of researcher and practitioner applications of the URP; the team of individuals who have helped support URP development; and downloadable URP instruments.
