An unresolved issue in the field of implementation research is how to conceptualise and evaluate the success of educational interventions. Notably, whether to take into consideration intervention adaptations introduced by teachers; referred to as the fidelity-adaptation debate. Whilst my study identified adaptations that may compromise an intervention’s overall theoretical objectives (infidelity), I focussed on adaptations that offered valuable contributions to implementations (positive infidelity). In doing so, I created a framework for highlighting teachers’ actions which may contribute positively to the implementation process. The principles underlying this framework may be applied to any education programme or curricula where fidelity is a concern.
