50 Years of the Kirkpatrick Model

Upside Learning

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’.

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.

Tracking is not Learning

Tracking data has become synonymous with measurement. This week I got an email from a vendor promoting the tracking capabilities of the product. It made realize how often tracking data is used to misrepresent training success. Many people think that metrics pulled out of an LMS indicate the success of training programs. Relying on tracking data shows our collective weakness in measuring training effectiveness.

This article offers insights on a set of practical cues that can be used to measure the business impact of your training and development programs. Organizations make steady investments in training and development programs every year. Introduction.

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? Beyond the standard four levels, there are two other measurements that must be evaluated: Level 5: What is the Return on Investment of the training program? Determining the metrics of success before course development is the first step. Making the return on investment metric a measurable number is the most ideal way to collect data.

Measuring The Effectiveness of Your Blended Learning Program

Obsidian Learning

You are likely familiar with Kirkpatrick’s model 1 of the 4 levels of evaluation: The higher you go up the levels, the more time and resources required, but the better the information you obtain. Well-designed learning usually includes ways for learners to demonstrate increased competency built into the program. These metrics are helpful for making the case for learning, but are insufficient to argue for the value of learning to the organization.

Why We Should Stop Talking About ROI in Training

Mindflash

Many people look at Don Kirkpatrick ’s work from as early as 1959 as the beginning of ROI in learning and development. It was in his early work that Kirkpatrick developed his four-level model: Level 1: Reaction. Another model and methodology from Jack Phillips includes a fifth level – ROI – which adds an added financial metric to the mix. In concept, Kirkpatrick’s levels seem valuable. We Don’t Need New Metrics.

Banishing Evaluation Fears

CLO Magazine

Countless articles, white papers and programs address this issue and provide solutions that range from simple to complicated. 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. Are there key metrics that should be improved as a result of this program?
