Training Evaluation

Evaluation involves the assessment of the effectiveness of the training programs. This assessment is done by collecting data on whether the participants were satisfied with the deliverables of the training program, whether they learned something from the training and are able to apply those skills at their workplace. There are different tools for assessment of a training program depending upon the kind of training conducted.Since organisations spend a large amount of money, it is therefore important for them to understand the usefulness of the same.

Level 2: Learning
Just because we know that participants like our training, doesn't mean that they've learned anything. We need to determine whether they learned something.
Level 2 evaluations can be used to determine if learning occurred. This information is good for three primary reasons:
Does the participant have the required skill and knowledge? These level 2 evaluations are also known as summative tests or certification exams.
Where does the participant require remediation or additional development? These level 2 evaluations are known as formative tests or developmental evaluations.
How can the training be improved? Sometimes that absence of learning indicated in level 2 evaluations is because of the teaching style or the materials. Level 2 assessments can tell you WHAT needs attention; and with time and analysis, can tell you WHY some participants are picking up the content and others aren't.
Tips to using level 2 evaluations effectively: * Determine the purpose: Why are you evaluating the learning? Who needs to know (students, managers, the instructor)? Why (improve the training, hire/fire/promote, give participants a gauge)? * Link tests to performance: If participants need to know something, design the test to measure knowledge (multiple choice, true-false, essay, matching, short-answer). If participants need to do something, design behavioral evaluations (i.e., role plays or demonstrations) with a measurement instrument
