Evaluating Training – Capturing the Benefits Aspect of ROI

Obsidian Learning

Return on investment (ROI) is a quantification of the relation between the benefits of a program and its costs [benefit-cost ratio (BCR)]. 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. In the L&D world, we are all familiar with Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation.

Is this thing on? Tips for measuring course effectiveness and return on investment

The Kirkpatrick four levels of training evaluation. The most commonly used method of accomplishing this is Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation. Kirkpatrick and Kirkpatrick (2006) compare it to measuring customer satisfaction and note that when learners are satisfied with training, they are more motivated to learn. The next level of evaluation measures how effectively the course results in behavioral change among the learners. Kirkpatrick, D.

How do we measure value creation from training?

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. The outcome of these behavioral changes should be increased performance: Have they achieved their objectives? Evaluating training ROI involves more than simply calculating a financial ratio.
