More on Re-evaluating Evaluation – Jack Phillips and ROI

Dashe & Thomson

I have been blogging a lot about Training Evaluation this year—mostly Kirkpatrick , but also Brinkerhoff and Scriven. I just realized that I haven’t included a single word about Jack Phillips , who introduced Return on Investment (ROI) as Level 5 to Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation. My first exposure to Phillips’ ROI—although I didn’t realize it at the time—was through a colleague who introduced me to Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels.

Last week, Don Kirkpatrick passed away. Kirkpatrick rode this tool for the rest of his career, created a family business in it, and he wasn’t shy about suggesting that you buy a book to learn about it. The Phillips have made a similar career with their fifth level, ROI, measuring the cost of impacting level 4 against the value of the impact. In assessing the impact, part of me is mindful that tools can be used for good or ill.

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.

KIRKPATRICK’S FOUR LEVELS OF EVALUATION

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.

What's the problem with Kirkpatrick?

Clive on Learning

While acknowledging that Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation had proved valuable over more than thirty years in helping to measure instructor-led, content-based 'training' interventions, Sloman felt that a new approach was necessary to support a more self-directed, work-based 'learning' process. It's worth checking first of all whether Kirkpatrick's model is still useful for evaluating the top-down stuff. So does Kirkpatrick's model apply as well in a learner-centred context?

Are learning objectives really that important?

The eLearning Nomad

The predetermined objectives approach was first introduced in a school-based setting in 1932 by Ralph Tyler, an influential American educator, specialised in assessment and evaluation. Yet, the evaluation models most talked about in the e-learning sector (Kirkpatrick and Phillips) do exactly that. It is especially useful for assessing soft skill, social and other subtle outcomes and impacts that are hard to measure.

How do we measure value creation from training?

Learning Wire

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.

There is a method for finding this out called the Kirkpatrick Model for evaluating training effectiveness.

There are many ways to test people, from un-graded multiple choice quizzes to scenario-based assessments. There are many reasons to start developing online training.

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.
