Is Kirkpatrick’s Model of Evaluating a Training Program The Best? – Part 3

CommLab India

This is the third blog in the Kirkpatrick Model of Instruction series. In the first part of the series, I covered the need to evaluate any training program and the basics of the Kirkpatrick model of evaluating a training program. In the second part of this series, I delved into each level of the Kirkpatrick model. It won’t stop just there – there would need to be an in-depth analysis conducted into the reasons for failure. His name is Dr. Jack Phillips.

ADDIE Backwards Planning Model

I have been working on this model for some time, so I wanted to present my latest version. Note that the Learning Platform (Implement) rests on the Analysis, Design, Development, and Evaluation Phases. The steps in the Analysis Phase closely align with Phillips' Needs Model and Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Evaluations. In addition, the Analysis steps align with the Design and Development steps: Click for a larger version with “clickable&# links.

Watershed's 7 Steps of Learning Evaluation


We've combined our favorite elements from Kirkpatrick , Kaufman , Anderson's Value of Learning , Brinkerhoff's Success Case Method , and Phillips' Model to create our version of a "super method" of how to evaluate learning. Consider use of dashboards for ongoing monitoring and reports for analysis at specific points in the program. Out of the dozens of different learning evaluation models currently in practice, which one is right for you?

Commonly Used Training Evaluations Models: A Discussion with Dr. Will Thalheimer

But anyway, when we think about data and analysis, you know, we need to collect data that’s accurate, valid, relevant, highly predictive of what we care about, what’s important, that’s also cost-effective. So we can also look at our designs, our analysis, our assumptions, and look at and get information about our learning by looking at the inputs as well as the outputs. Four Common Learning Evaluation Models–Kirkpatrick, Kaufman, Philips & Brinkerhoff.

Instructional Design Basics: What Is ADDIE?

Convergence Training

ADDIE is an acronym that stands for each of the steps of the model–analyze, design, develop, implement, and evaluation (or you might see it listed out as analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation). The five steps of ADDIE are: Analysis. Analysis or Analyze.
