According to Dr. Don Kirkpatrick, there are three reasons to evaluate a training program: To know how to improve future training programs. In my previous blog, I presented a brief introduction to the Kirkpatrick’s Model of Evaluation and its impact on training 1.

Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation

It was while writing his thesis in 1952 that Donald Kirkpatrick became interested in evaluating training programs. The four-level model developed by Kirkpatrick is now universally used in gauging training effectiveness.

Evaluating Training – Capturing the Benefits Aspect of ROI

The exercise is fairly simple as long as we stick to formulas, but in order to determine the ROI of a training program, we need to collect data through assessment and evaluation of what knowledge and skills were gained and what behaviors have changed.

The most widely used (at least in theory) method of evaluating training programs is the four-level model developed by Donald Kirkpatrick. Learning – The new knowledge, skills, and attitudes gained from the course. Behavior – How well the new knowledge, skills, and attitudes are applied on the job.

They utilize the time-tested Kirkpatrick’s Model for post-training evaluation. Here is how the model is adopted by managers measuring the success of an eLearning training program: Kirkpatrick’s model is comprised of four levels. At the third level, behavior changes are assessed.

Why We Should Stop Talking About ROI in Training

Many people look at Don Kirkpatrick ’s work from as early as 1959 as the beginning of ROI in learning and development. It was in his early work that Kirkpatrick developed his four-level model: Level 1: Reaction. Level 3: Behavior. Behavior and Results?

It has been by building on the concept of the HR value chain (Paauwe &Richardson, 1997), and the Kirkpatrick’s model (Kirkpatrick, 1998). It became clear that L&D not only enhances employees’ skills and knowledge but also affects employees’ attitudes and behaviors.

There are many models of training evaluation, including the popular Kirkpatrick Model, which breaks evaluation into four levels: reaction, learning, behavior, results. Still others have argued for separating behavior metrics from performance metrics, and other modifications.
