eLearning Process Survey results!

Clark Quinn

So, a few weeks ago I ran a survey asking about elearning processes*, and it’s time to look at the results (I’ve closed it). I assumed people would know to choose the lowest option in the list if they could, and I don’t know that (flaw in the survey design). Ideally, we start from a business metric we need to address and work backward.

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.

How Employee Performance determines the Success of Your Training Program

The evaluation process usually involves both the manager and staff in scrutinizing and justifying employee performance metrics together. Also included in these evaluations are the ‘intangibles’ – performance metrics that aren’t based on any quantifiable indicators per se; but rather are observable behaviors and competencies required for an employee to do the job well. And for the sake of this post, we will stick to the most commonly used methodology – the Kirkpatrick Model.

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? One way to capture this information would be to send a follow-up survey via Google Forms or something similar and have summaries shared with management. 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.

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.

That data can then be leveraged by correlating with metrics that are monitored anyway, such as performance and potential.

Measurement, Meet Management

Banishing Evaluation Fears

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.

Measuring Learning Delivery

CLO Magazine

Most practitioners measure delivery and other aspects of a course using Kirkpatrick’s level 1, typically via a short survey asking about content, delivery and the environment, as well as relevance to the job. Best practice is to also ask about intended application (a forecast for level 3 application rate) and anticipated impact (a forecast for level 4 impact), which makes the level 1 feedback much more valuable than a traditional “smile sheet” survey.

Measuring Training Program ROI
