Measurement?

Clark Quinn

First, if you haven’t seen it, you should check out the debate I had with the good Dr. Will Thalheimer over at his blog about the Kirkpatrick model. And I agree, though we might want to track (via something like the xAPI ) to see what things are effective or not. If there is a gap, you have a natural metric. Sorry for the lack of posts this week; Monday was shot while I migrated my old machine to a new one (yay)! Tuesday was shot with catching up.

Watershed's 7 Steps of Learning Evaluation

Watershed

We've been using Watershed Insights to dig into several models of learning evaluation in light of what's possible with modern technologies such as xAPI. We've combined our favorite elements from Kirkpatrick , Kaufman , Anderson's Value of Learning , Brinkerhoff's Success Case Method , and Phillips' Model to create our version of a "super method" of how to evaluate learning. Step 2: Define metrics for effective evaluation.

Best practices on measuring the impact of organizational learning

The Kirkpatrick model still stands as a beacon in this sea of continuous renewal but there is the poignant need for a different approach to measuring everything from engagement to impact of training programs. It works even better if there is an LMS with an xApi extension. Read more: Building a learning ecosystem that works with xAPI. Learning measurement is one of those topics that constantly seems to need revisiting.

Seven Innovative Ways To Measure Training Effectiveness

This is doubly ironic, considering most L&Ds departments are pumped on data-analytics-steroids, with a mandate to get metrics for every activity undertaken. And each of these need a different evaluation approach; usually a mix of quantitative and qualitative metrics. . Intelligent Measurement with xAPI. It’s the growing popularity of such blended, adaptive, long-term and interactive learning experiences that led to the advent of Experience API (xAPI).

What Is Learning Evaluation?

This series is ideal if you're new to learning evaluation and measurement, need a refresher on learning evaluation theories, need help deciding which learning evaluation theories best suit your needs, or simply interested in understanding how technology, xAPI , and measurement fit into learning evaluation. An Overview: Kirkpatrick Learning Evaluation Model. Step 2: Define metrics for effective learning evaluation.

The Only Person Who Behaves Sensibly Is My Tailor

Effective Metrics for Learning and Development I wonder what Shaw would think if he saw the way learning and development is predominantly measured in organisations today. Outcomes not Activity Even with today’s interest in the xAPI/TinCan protocol the predominant focus is still on measuring activity. It may be helpful to know that (noun, verb, object) ‘Charles did this’ as xAPI specifies. These time-honoured metrics developed for an industrial age are not the answer.
