    Creating Evaluations: "The Taste Test"

    In the November session, we learned about the four levels of evaluation and how to measure learning, but have your discovered that your surveys and tests aren't giving you the information that you need? 

    Do you struggle with selecting the right type of questions to use when assessing learning? Do you know when to use a performance test, recall test, or a recognition test? Do you worry about the validity of your test questions?

    Do you know whether to select a matching question, fill in the blank, multiple choice item, short answer, or open-ended essay question?

    Come to this session to learn how to make your evaluations more effective.

      Measuring Learning: How to Gather the Ingredients

      Most learning professionals are aware of the four levels of learning as first introduced by Donald Kirkpatrick in 1959 in a series of articles called "Techniques for Evaluating Training Programs." published in the journal of American Society for Training and Development.

      If you are unfamiliar with the four levels, they are:

      Level 1: Reaction

      Level 2: Learning

      Level 3: Behavior 

      Level 4: Results. 

      Each of these four levels are important ingredients to the learning recipe - and yet they are often difficult to obtain.

      In this session, participants will learn not just about the four levels, but also how to set yourself up for success in achieving them!
