Measuring Level Four


Sounds like something from a sci-fi flick, doesn’t it?!? But of course I’m referring to Donald Kirkpatrick’s four-level model for measuring learning outcomes. The first level, you’ll remember, is “reaction.&# We do a good job of measuring that by using “smile sheets&# — those feedback forms that we issue right after learning as occurred (for more on Smile Sheets, see the article “Smile Sheets To Smile About&# in the April 2010 issue of ASAE’s Associations Now magazine).

As I discussed last week , having a person's name and a personal pronoun in the same sentence seems to make our normal ear for grammar go out the window. They own separate cars.].

Learning Rocks

For whatever reason, this diagram by Clark Quinn has stuck in my head, and for the fourth time of calling I found myself scrabbling to find it, including tweeting the man himself to see if he could identify it from my patchy description.

This started as an alternative to the popular #FollowFriday on Twitter where people say who they recommend to follow. find that most #FF recommendations lack context so I usually ignore them and I don’t post them as I feel they just add noise to the stream. Instead, I curate Friday’s Finds. For 107 consecutive weeks I published Friday’s Finds but I missed last week because I was having too much  fun deep in many conversations.
