Root Cause Analysis Methods & Tips

Association eLearning

I’ve given an example of root cause analysis before, so this time let’s dive deeper into the “how to”. Note that with any root cause analysis you’ll need access to data, feedback, and/or other information. You might be working with existing information or need to shift gears part way through the analysis to gather what you need. Here are some common methods for conducting root cause analysis.

Conducting Post-Course Evaluations

CourseArc

Course evaluations are often an afterthought, a last-minute addition to the overwhelming instructional design process. While many instructional designers realize the importance of course evaluations, often the process of corralling SMEs and working on many iterations of multiple courses take precedence over developing evaluations. The industry standard Kirkpatrick model measures training based on the four levels of analysis: Level 1: Did the learners enjoy training?
