If you wonder whether your training/any training is working, want to evaluate the effectiveness of the training, and are looking for assessment tools, this path is created just for you.
Through this path you will learn...
How to evaluate the instructional technology use, student learning, knowledge transfer, and satisfaction.
How to develop measurement tools to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction or training interventions.
How to develop testing and evaluation procedures.
Measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of instruction allows us to know which parts of instruction are successful, and which parts are not quite successful as expected, so through the data collection and progress monitor, we could redesign the process for improvements. The effectiveness and efficiency evaluation can be divided into three areas, the technology involved in instruction, the knowledge transfer, and the learning satisfaction, which reflect the overall experience of the instruction and how much learning actually happened.
Since there are several successful models that help you measure the effectiveness of a training program, the first thing we do is to choose a model that best suits you. Below are three well-known assessment models to choose from. * Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Evaluation * Phillips' ROI Model * Brinkerhoff's Success Case Method
Now you have learned the assessment models, and you are ready to do some hands-on assessment. One of the best ways to do it is following the 7 steps that the Association for Talent Development (ATD) outlined for us. • Identify customer expectations. • Select appropriate strategies, research design, and measures. • Communicate and gain support for the evaluation plan. • Manage data collections. • Analyze and interpret data. • Apply learning analytics. • Make recommendations to aid decision making.
