If you deliver training for your team or your organization, then you probably know how important it is to measure its effectiveness. After all, you don't want to spend time or money on training that doesn't provide a good return. This is where Kirkpatrick's Four-Level Training Evaluation Model can help you objectively analyze the effectiveness and impact of your training, so that you can improve it in the future.
The How to Evaluate a Training Program Infographic presents Donald Kirkpatrick’s model . The model has 4 levels of evaluation and is a solid base to begin:
- Reaction: Did learners like the training? Did they complete it?
- Learning: How much is job performance improved, what could learners apply?
- Performing: What skills and knowledge did learners acquire?
- Results: How well did the organization meet its business goals?
