The evaluation of the translation (transferability and feasibility) of school playground strategies to other school settings is emerging as an important consideration for researchers and educators. Despite the importance of comprehensively evaluating school playground interventions, there is little evidence from process evaluations to provide guidance to other schools of how to replicate positive school playground strategy effects. This chapter will highlight key components of research that are important to ensure such translatability and feasibility to implement within other settings.
