Y Is xAPI So x-Zillerating?

ATD Learning Technologies

xAPI promises far more than its predecessor, the SCORM standard, which tracked e-learning activity in learning management systems. While xAPI is not new in its technology, it is gaining greater traction in the L&D field because of what it gives us: the ability to share across platforms as well as the capacity of measuring far more than e-learning modules. xAPI starts with the learning record provider. You may, for example, use the Kirkpatrick Model to measure.

Meridian Unveils Latest Edition of Leading Learning Management System

Meridian

This latest release features an enhanced learner experience for video content and courses, evaluations / observation checklists and xAPI?statements. Evaluations / Observation Checklists: with support for Kirkpatrick Level 3, evaluations now allow for a manager, instructor, or designated evaluator to fill out survey questions about a?particular It also allows administrators to see all xAPI statements captured by the Meridian LRS.

On Talent Development Reporting principles

Matrix

In this field, effectiveness has been measured by Kirkpatrick’s four levels and lately by Jack Philips ’ fifth one (having to do with the ROI of learning). Level 4 of the Kirkpatrick model indeed does some of this job, but there is a stringent need for more. xAPI is a gamechanger.

Learning and Development Glossary

The CMI5 is a profile for blending the xAPI specification with the learning management system. It involves a set of rules for xAPI which narrow the ‘umbrella’ or extensive specification to enhance its adoption rate in the industry. Kirkpatrick Model.

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. 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.

Best practices on measuring the impact of organizational learning

Matrix

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.

Commonly Used Training Evaluations Models: A Discussion with Dr. Will Thalheimer

Convergence Training

Four Common Learning Evaluation Models–Kirkpatrick, Kaufman, Philips & Brinkerhoff. Well, of course, the most common, the most well-known, is the Kirkpatrick four-level model. And okay, if we can just walk through each of the four models you talked about–Kirkpatrick, Phillips, Kaufman, and Brinckerhoff–and maybe you can explain to people, especially people who may not have heard of any of these, what they are and what are some pros and cons of each.

What Is Learning Evaluation?

Watershed

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. Knowing how to aggregate and evaluate all types of learning is a priority for many learning and development practitioners.

Seven Innovative Ways To Measure Training Effectiveness

WhatFix

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). xAPI (formerly known as Tin Can) content standards aids in the production of personalized training content modules. Apart from being the latest buzzword in the learning circuit, xAPI can exactly tell you exactly where learning is happening, powered by analytics & reporting features.

Julie Dirksen – Sponge elearning podcast

Sponge UK

xAPI standards. Kirkpatrick model. Our guest for episode 3 is highly respected instructional designer and author Julie Dirksen. You’ll be hearing her views on helping learners to form good habits, how to avoid some common design mistakes and what we can all learn from video game designers. The second edition of Julie Dirksen’s book Design for how people learn is regarded as one of the best starting points for anyone new to instructional design.

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. Out of the dozens of different learning evaluation models currently in practice, which one is right for you?

How L&D can embrace digital to solve fundamental training problems

Matrix

Donald and James Kirkpatrick developed a very useful framework of evaluating training program that is still in use today by many training professionals. It may seem impossible to measure learning activities that are not connected to a formal type of training, but xAPI proves this wrong.

The Ultimate Glossary of eLearning Terms

LearnUpon

From Agile to xAPI and everything in between, there are a lot of eLearning terms to get your head around. Notable contributions include SCORM and xAPI. An eLearning content authoring tool is a software package which content developers use to create and package eLearning course content using SCORM or xAPI standards. This is a “profile” for using the xAPI specification with learning management systems. Kirkpatrick Model. xAPI (Tin Can).

Learning Analytics: Advanced Evaluation Complexity

Watershed

This process is loosely based on Kirkpatrick’s four levels of learning evaluation. The following example shows drop off analysis for an xAPI-tracked game we hosted during a conference. Advanced Evaluation is less common than Data Evaluation , which means there’s no well-worn path leading the way. Organizations venturing into this level of complexity are often doing so in ways that are different from others.

What Is Evidence-Based Training?

Convergence Training

What we’re not talking about in this article is: Data from learner experiences gathered through something like SCORM or xAPI. Training evaluation models, such as Kirkpatrick’s four-level model. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea to check learner data through something like xAPI. Not that long ago, we wrote a blog article about learning myths , and in that article, we promised we’d cycle back and write another on evidence-based training practices.

How to demonstrate elearning ROI in the most relevant way

Elucidat

Modern authoring tools , in-depth learner analytics and even sophisticated xAPI integrations mean that an ROI calculation that measures human engagement is achievable. Kirkpatrick’s model for evaluating training places ROI as the pot of gold at the top of the evaluation pyramid, and much of the L&D community still views it as a dream to chase rather than a reality to measure. Are you measuring ROI of your elearning?

The Only Person Who Behaves Sensibly Is My Tailor

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. Brinkerhoff’s Success Case Method addresses systems impact rather than trying to isolate the impact of learning individually as the more simplistic Kirkpatrick approach attempts. “The only person who behaves sensibly is my tailor.

Tips for Small L&D Departments: An Interview with Emily Wood

So, a lot of background in qualitative and quantitative analytics, so I’m really excited about xAPI and the kinds of data that we can get back from training and learning. Maybe if I’m lucky enough we can have you back to discuss how you work with all those different SMEs on those topics you know a little bit about, or get to know a little bit better, and also touch base in the future about your experiences with xAPI.
