MTA: Why the Kirkpatrick Model Works for Us

CLO Magazine

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. Implementing the Kirkpatrick Model. The methodology to implement the Kirkpatrick Model is straightforward.

CLO Symposium

Jay Cross

Along with my Internet Time Alliance colleagues Jane Hart & Clark Quinn and several hundred chief learning officers, I attended the Fall CLO Symposium this week. It’s intended to underpin the dialog between CLO and executive management. It replaces the inward-looking mumbo-jumbo of Kirkpatrick and the Phillips with business measures. “Nobody cares about internal metrics.”

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

CLO Magazine

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. However, using the Kirkpatrick Model to calculate not just the human benefit, but also the financial impact – the ROI – can prove difficult. That data can then be leveraged by correlating with metrics that are monitored anyway, such as performance and potential.

Boost your L&D visibility & credibility – The Annual Learning Report

Learning Wire

Critical remarks have been placed at commonly used models to capture the added value of L&D, as Kirkpatrick’s model. This model (Kirkpatrick, 1998), has served as one of the most popular frameworks for evaluating training programs for the last decades. Overall, research finds that Kirkpatrick, Philips and other models measuring ROI, do not fit contemporary L&D due to a lack of attention for continuous learning. Credible metrics for L&D’s performance.

Banishing Evaluation Fears

CLO Magazine

However, there is fear of what might happen if value cannot be shown, so instead of evaluating how training improves performance and contributes to agency mission accomplishment, they select metrics that are easier to demonstrate. There is also reticence to evaluate the degree to which participants apply what they learned in training when they are back on the job, or what we refer to as behavior (level 3) in the Kirkpatrick Model (see figure on p.

Measurement Efforts Don’t Quite Measure Up

CLO Magazine

Learning professionals have been using Donald Kirkpatrick’s training evaluation model, or some variation of it, for 60 years, since it was first introduced in 1959. Only 58 percent of respondents said their measurement and metrics are fully aligned with learning strategy. And only 45 percent report externally benchmarking their measurement and metrics practices. The post Measurement Efforts Don’t Quite Measure Up appeared first on Chief Learning Officer - CLO Media.

Dive In

CLO Magazine

If you are evaluating your programs based on the 4-level Kirkpatrick Model, experiential learning’s participant engagement not only leads to high level 1 participant evaluations (reaction), but the increased retention and behavior change at one’s job have a huge impact on level 2, 3 and 4 evaluations as well (learning, behavior and results, respectively). Results orientation: What financial metrics did you prioritize to assess performance achievement?
