Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation

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.

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. Level 3 Evaluation – Transfer: The third level assesses the change that has occurred in participants’ behavior due to the training program.

Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation: A Critique

The Performance Improvement Blog

At the end of Dan McCarthy’s blog post , “How to Evaluate a Training Program”, in which he explains his pre-post, survey approach to applying the Kirkpatrick four levels of training evaluation , he asks: Has anyone used a system like this, or something better? First of all, there is low correlation among the four levels (reaction, learning, behavior, and results). I hate to think where employee training would be today if we hadn’t been guided by Donald Kirkpatrick’s thinking.

As he settled into his new job, Wiedecker read Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick’s book, “Training on Trial,” which inspired him to implement the Kirkpatrick training evaluation model at the MTA. The four levels of training evaluation Don Kirkpatrick put forth first in the 1950s are well known to learning leaders. Sixty percent evaluate Level 3: behavior — how participants apply training on the job. Implementing the Kirkpatrick Model.

50 Years of the Kirkpatrick Model

In the fifty years since, his thoughts (Reaction, Learning, Behavior, and Results) have gone on to evolve into the legendary Kirkpatrick’s Four Level Evaluation Model and become the basis on which learning & development departments can show the value of training to the business. In November 1959, Donald Kirkpatrick published a series of seminal articles on training evaluation in the ‘Journal of the ASTD’.

What is Kirkpatrick’s Model of Training Evaluation? The Kirkpatrick Model was developed in the 1950s by Donald Kirkpatrick, a professor, and training specialist. You can capture your learners’ comments and recommendations by using your LMS to create a post-training survey.

Evaluating Training with Kirkpatrick's Four-Level Model

Designing Digitally

Kirkpatrick's Four-Level Training Evaluation Model is an excellent model to help analyze the impact of training on the organization. . Donald Kirkpatrick , Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin, first published the Four-Level Training Evaluation Model in 1959. Reactions can be measured through typical employee satisfaction surveys, or by asking the learners for verbal feedback directly. It is important to be able to measure the effectiveness of any training.

Luckily, Donald Kirkpatrick created a training evaluation model that gives this process a clear structure. This type of evaluation is often conducted at the end of the session by giving out short forms to fill in or, in the case of online training , it consists of an internet based survey containing the same questions as the paper version. This third level is designed to measure the transfer that has occurred in learners’ behavior due to the training program.

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. According to Dr. Don Kirkpatrick, there are four levels of evaluation of any training program. Level 3 – Behavior. We will discuss this and more in the third part of this Kirkpatrick series.

Don Kirkpatrick’s Contribution to Learning & Development

Of course, there were some surveys around but he didn’t think their quality was very good. So, he created an approach to measure reaction, learning, behavior and results holistically. I just saw an announcement that Don will retire from the speaking circuit this year. Few people have single-handedly made such an impact on our profession. I have known Don for years and his story is very interesting. Don got his start in learning when he was working on his Ph.D.

Conducting Post-Course Evaluations

CourseArc

The industry standard Kirkpatrick model measures training based on the four levels of analysis: Level 1: Did the learners enjoy training? Level 3: How did the learners ’ behavior change after attending training? To measure behavior changes, the learner’s baseline behavior must be compared to the behavior after the training. One method to evaluate behavior is to send a follow-up questionnaire to managers and supervisors few weeks or months after the training.

Avoid and Correct Employee Evaluation Pitfalls

CLO Magazine

Conversely, if you follow the common, old-school approach to planning and implementing training, thinking about how you will evaluate reaction (Level 1), then learning (Level 2), then behavior (Level 3), it’s easy to see why few people get to Level 4 results. Some believe in the existence of a miracle survey that will provide all necessary training evaluation data. Surveys, particularly those administered and tabulated electronically, are an efficient means of gathering data.

It’s Time to Rethink the Value of Training and Development

Many rely on the Kirkpatrick Model , which offers four levels of evaluation: Level 1: Reaction – The degree to which employees find the training favorable, engaging and relevant to their jobs. Level 3: Behavior – The degree to which employees apply what they learned during training when they return to their work. However, using the Kirkpatrick Model to calculate not just the human benefit, but also the financial impact – the ROI – can prove difficult.
