Simulations Evaluation

Your Training Edge

Now that you’ve decided to use simulations in your programs, let’s look at some best practices for evaluating simulation results. A well-designed simulation will only be effective if you are able to evaluate the results – and pass those results on to the participants. As we’ve discussed, immediate feedback is a benefit of simulations, so the evaluation of final outcomes should be fairly immediate so that participants can quickly apply what they’ve learned.

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. Ironically, in many cases, leadership seeks answers to Level 5 and Level 6 evaluations but does not invest in evaluating the basic levels.

Evaluation Is Not Complicated

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. As Brinkerhoff explains in The Success Case Method , there is a simple logic to assessing impact. Three immutable laws drive this method of evaluation.
