Conducting Post-Course Evaluations

CourseArc

Course evaluations are often an afterthought, a last-minute addition to the overwhelming instructional design process. While many instructional designers realize the importance of course evaluations, often the process of corralling SMEs and working on many iterations of multiple courses take precedence over developing evaluations.

Clark Quinn

It’s about what to evaluate, why, and possibly when. The post What to evaluate? In a couple of articles, the notion that we should be measuring our impact on the business is called out. And being one who says just that , I feel obligated to respond. So let’s get clear on what I’m saying and why.

Evaluation Is Not Complicated

The Performance Improvement Blog

In his blog post , “Stop Evaluating Training!”, Garg writes: So how do you evaluate the success of eLearning that you create?" Maybe evaluation of the impact of training is not a “walk in the park”, but it is not “rocket science” either. Three immutable laws drive this method of evaluation. A useful evaluation of training will examine these unintended consequences (positive and negative) as well as achievement of objectives of the intervention. .

Clark Quinn

However, the situation has changed, and it’s worth revisiting the issue of evaluation. Will attacked that the model didn’t really evaluate learning. I replied that it’s role wasn’t evaluating the effectiveness of the learning design on the learning outcome, it was assessing the impact of the learning outcome on the organizational outcome. However, I reckon it’s more robust for evaluating learning interventions. Evaluation is critical.
