Using curriculum-specific tools for measuring fidelity of implementation is an essen- tial yet often overlooked aspect of examining relationships among textbooks, teaching, and student learning. This Brief Report describes the variety of ways that curriculum implementation is measured and argues that there is an urgent need to develop curriculum-sensitive tools for analyzing classroom practice. The report outlines the use of the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM) theory to develop analytical tools for measuring implementation of two middle-grades reform mathematics curricula: Connected Mathematics and MathThematics. The report also presents next steps in this program of research.
