The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a partnership-based model of collaborative consultation on the acquisition and implementation integrity of Competent Learner Model and the subsequent impact on learner outcomes including the development of competent learner repertoires. Treatment integrity measures were collected to assess the impact on learner outcomes. The participants were one teacher and one student. A Multiple baseline across behaviors design was used. Measures used were the Partnership Assessment in Community-based Research (PAIR), and the Instructional Session Performance Checklist (ISPC). The results showed moderate and sustained levels of treatment integrity with mixed results for learner outcomes. Implications of the research suggest that a partnership-based collaboration can support a teacher in acquiring evidence-based practices.
