The main purpose of this paper is reviewing the nature of diffusion and implementation of curriculum evaluation results in a curriculum system. First, we discuss the knowledge construction in the field of curriculum, and then we will try to answer the question of how the evaluation results can be implemented and diffused. In addition, the process of result diffusion is one of main topics for discussion in this paper. After that, different models of diffusion and implementation such as CIHR, OTAVA and the performance-directed process knowledge would be presented. Here, the emphasis would be on models that have been used at least from 1990s up to now. Finally, the issues related to the diffusion and implementation of evaluation results would be presented.
