Training Evaluation – 5 Best Ways to Evaluate Training Effectiveness and Impact

Kitaboo

Training evaluation refers to an attempt to obtain relevant information on the effects of a training program. The primary objective of evaluating any training program is to develop an understanding of whether it has achieved its stated objectives. There are several types of training evaluation methods and tools available that enterprises can use to evaluate and significantly improve the outcome of future training as well.

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. We will discuss this and more in the third part of this Kirkpatrick series.

Do You Know How Successful Your eLearning Program Really Is?

SHIFT eLearning

Here, it is important to mention one key element: evaluation. There are many different approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of an eLearning course, but they all share a common first step: identifying success metrics. Kirkpatrick''s taxonomy is one seasoned model that continues to receive widespread use. Developed by Dr. Don Kirkpatrick in the 1950s, the model originally contained four levels of training evaluation.

Some of the commonly used models and theories in ID are Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction , Dale’s Cone of Experience , Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning Domains , Ruth Clark’s Principles of eLearning , David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model , and Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Training Evaluation. Make the session objectives SMART and conforming to Bloom’s Taxonomy. Course creation and delivery have come a long way in the past couple of decades.

Unsurprisingly, we see that the three most often used design models continue to be ADDIE, Bloom’s Learning Taxonomy, and KirkPatrick’s 4 Levels of Training Evaluation. Instructional design is a robust field that requires constant vigilance to new technology and methodology. If you don’t hone your craft and keep your skills relevant, then you run the risk of being left behind. Now, for those of us in the field this isn’t threatening in the least bit.

Learning Measurement: A Work in Progress

Learning evaluation, metrics and measurement are not where they need to be, but some companies have made progress. Learning evaluation and measurement have come a long way since Donald Kirkpatrick, widely credited as a trailblazer in the field, first introduced his four levels of learning evaluation in 1959. On the other, many scramble to turn troves of evaluation data into isolated return on investment figures to show senior leaders learning is worthwhile.

I argued that training is mired in old, faddish theory; Bloom, Gagne, Maslow, Kirkpatrick – train the trainer courses are still full of old behaviourist theory (killed stone dead by Chomsky in 1959) trapping us in 50 year old theories that holds the industry back. Training is also locked into a form of evaluation that guarantees that it won’t be taken seriously. Kill Kirkpatrick before he kills you.

A proper learning objective must be performance-based and follow the guidelines that Mager’s “Preparing Instructional Objectives” and Benjamin Bloom’s 1956 Taxonomy provide. Using Bloom’s taxonomy, these learning objectives follow the attainment of higher levels of knowledge in order to achieve the business goals and performance outcomes for all associated roles.
