The ATD Competency Model provides an industry standard approach to evaluating learning impact that can be used with any measurement framework (Kirkpatrick's four levels, Phillips' ROI model, etc.). Select a sample evaluation project to follow the ATD model and use as an example throughout this portion of the course.
- One of the best ways to learn a new skill…is to gain some hands-on experience.…With this in mind, I encourage you to pick one…of your own training programs…that you'd like to measure and evaluate.…Ideally, the program you select…should be in the development stage.…Evaluation works best when you plan…for it at the very beginning.…It's okay if you don't have…a training program that you're currently designing.…You can still apply these techniques retroactively…to a program you already have.…I've got a sample training program…I'd like to use to give you…an example of an evaluation project.…
Take a look at this e-mail from an executive…who's requesting interviewing skills training.…- [Stacie] Hi Jeff,…You're probably aware that HR is rolling out…a new interviewing process next month.…The supervisors in my region…could really use some extra help with this.…Could you put together a two-hour interviewing skills class?…I don't have much of a budget,…although I could probably help…with travel and facilities costs.…Thanks!…
