Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation

Learnnovators

It was while writing his thesis in 1952 that Donald Kirkpatrick became interested in evaluating training programs. In a series of articles published in 1959, he prescribed a four-stage model for evaluating training programs, but it was not until 1994, that he published “ Evaluating Training Programs: The Four Levels “ According to Kirkpatrick, evaluating training programs is necessary for the following reasons: 1.

It was while writing his thesis in 1952 that Donald Kirkpatrick became interested in evaluating training programs. According to Kirkpatrick, evaluating training programs is necessary for the following reasons: 1. The four-level model developed by Kirkpatrick is now universally used in gauging training effectiveness. This stage calls for more rigorous procedures, ranging from formal to informal testing to team assessment and self-assessment.

ROI: It’s All About Proximity

I’m not saying training does not contribute to a learner’s on-the-job performance, but in the sense of measuring a Kirkpatrick or Phillips level 4/5 impact, we all know “contributing” is not a strong word. In the classic Kirkpatrick levels 1-4 model, training is best assessed at levels one and two. We can pre- and post-assess our learners to see if new knowledge was acquired during the experience.

How do you measure how training creates value? – The 7 learning principles

The Kirkpatrick/Phillips model shows us how and why to assess training outcomes. Assessing the benefits of training is quite different. Instead of a set of data, it involves a chain of measurable proofs of benefit, as shown in the Kirkpatrick/Phillips pyramid. The Kirkpatrick/Phillips pyramid identifies five dimensions that form a sequence: What is the value created for my company? Assessed by the Board of Directors. Phillips, 2006).

Next, knowledge acquisition is measured a few weeks later, to assess how effectively knowledge and skills have been passed on to the learners. This should take place over a period of time (minimum 2 months, according to Kirkpatrick (1998)) and aims to measure how the learner’s behavior has changed since he or she completed the training. It means assessing how much value has been created using key performance indicators (KPIs) that have been defined before the training begins.
