Donald Kirkpatrick’s four levels of training: Lessons from a Legend

Origin Learning

Kirkpatrick , Professor Emeritus, University Of Wisconsin first gave his ideas for a series of articles to be published in the Journal of American Society of Training Directors in the year 1959, hardly had anyone anticipated that this was to be the stuff of legend. Answers to these questions may be obtained by using ‘happy sheets’ which are paper-pencil or online surveys typically administered immediately after the conclusion of the training event.

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.

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).

Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation: A Critique

The Performance Improvement Blog

At the end of Dan McCarthy’s blog post , “How to Evaluate a Training Program”, in which he explains his pre-post, survey approach to applying the Kirkpatrick four levels of training evaluation , he asks: Has anyone used a system like this, or something better? This takes nothing away from the contribution that the Kirkpatrick model has made to the field over the past 50 years. Second , self-report surveys produce unreliable performance data.

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. However, only 35 percent of surveyed organizations measure Level 4: results — the impact training has on the organization as a whole.

Luckily, Donald Kirkpatrick created a training evaluation model that gives this process a clear structure. This type of evaluation is often conducted at the end of the session by giving out short forms to fill in or, in the case of online training , it consists of an internet based survey containing the same questions as the paper version. The post Measuring training effectiveness — the Kirkpatrick model appeared first on MATRIX Blog.

Reactions can be measured through typical employee satisfaction surveys, or by asking the learners for verbal feedback directly. It is important to be able to measure the effectiveness of any training.

What Do You Do With Your Evaluation data?

Donald Kirkpatrick created the four-level model for training evaluation, which most organisations claim to cherish. We measure reaction through surveys conducted towards the end of training (sometimes called smile sheets). For those unfamiliar, the four levels are as follows. Reaction – this answers the question what did the learners think about the training. Learning – this answers the question what did the learners learn during or immediately following the instruction.

Evaluating Social Learning

There are people looking at applying the Kirkpatrick model, there are people measuring the use of social learning tools, and there are people talking about something similar to Brinkerhoff’s Success Case Method.

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?

Some believe in the existence of a miracle survey that will provide all necessary training evaluation data. Surveys, particularly those administered and tabulated electronically, are an efficient means of gathering data. It is so easy to disseminate these surveys that they are often launched after every program, no matter how large or small. This creates survey fatigue and makes it less likely that you will gather meaningful data for any program.
