The Kirkpatrick-Phillips Model – Part 4

CommLab India

In the third part of this series, we looked at the advantages and disadvantages of the Kirkpatrick Model of Evaluating a training program. I mentioned the Kirkpatrick-Phillips Model of Evaluation in passing, and promised you more on this “ evolved ” model. I call this an “ evolved ” model because, the Kirkpatrick-Phillips Model of Evaluating a training program is based on the Kirkpatrick Model of Evaluation. Kirkpatrick Model.

More on Re-evaluating Evaluation – Jack Phillips and ROI

Dashe & Thomson

I have been blogging a lot about Training Evaluation this year—mostly Kirkpatrick , but also Brinkerhoff and Scriven. I just realized that I haven’t included a single word about Jack Phillips , who introduced Return on Investment (ROI) as Level 5 to Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation. My first exposure to Phillips’ ROI—although I didn’t realize it at the time—was through a colleague who introduced me to Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels.

Vale Don Kirkpatrick

Clark Quinn

Last week, Don Kirkpatrick passed away. Kirkpatrick rode this tool for the rest of his career, created a family business in it, and he wasn’t shy about suggesting that you buy a book to learn about it. The Phillips have made a similar career with their fifth level, ROI, measuring the cost of impacting level 4 against the value of the impact. Still, Kirkpatrick could’ve renumbered the steps, or been more outspoken about the problems with just step 1.

Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation

Learnnovators

It was while writing his thesis in 1952 that Donald Kirkpatrick became interested in evaluating training programs. In a series of articles published in 1959, he prescribed a four-stage model for evaluating training programs, but it was not until 1994, that he published “ Evaluating Training Programs: The Four Levels “ According to Kirkpatrick, evaluating training programs is necessary for the following reasons: 1.

Training Evaluation Beyond Kirkpatrick

Training Industry

Today, when we discuss training evaluation, we likely reference Kirkpatrick’s model with the familiar four levels: reaction, learning, behavior and results. Most of the models expand upon the Kirkpatrick model and try to address some of its limitations, including criticisms by researchers that the interdependence and implied causality of each of the four levels has not been proven by empirical research.

KIRKPATRICK’S FOUR LEVELS OF EVALUATION

It was while writing his thesis in 1952 that Donald Kirkpatrick became interested in evaluating training programs. According to Kirkpatrick, evaluating training programs is necessary for the following reasons: 1. The four-level model developed by Kirkpatrick is now universally used in gauging training effectiveness. Since Kirkpatrick stated his original model, other theorists like Jack Phillips, have referred to a fifth level, namely, Return On Investment (ROI).

What's the problem with Kirkpatrick?

Clive on Learning

While acknowledging that Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation had proved valuable over more than thirty years in helping to measure instructor-led, content-based 'training' interventions, Sloman felt that a new approach was necessary to support a more self-directed, work-based 'learning' process. It's worth checking first of all whether Kirkpatrick's model is still useful for evaluating the top-down stuff. So does Kirkpatrick's model apply as well in a learner-centred context?
