How To Evaluate Training Programmes
At some point you may undertake an evaluation of a training. When that time comes, it is good to know that one the most common rubric for assessing trainings is the Kirkpatrick model.
What is the Kirkpatrick Model?
In 1959, Donald Kirkpatrick developed the Kirkpatrick evaluation model for measuring training programs' effectiveness. The model is a globally recognized method of evaluating the results of training and learning programmes. It assesses both formal and informal training methods and rates them against four levels of criteria: reaction, learning, behavior, and results.
The image below shows the various Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) tools that can be used to evaluate each level of the Kirkpatrick model.
