Evaluation is a central component of the learning process without which we would not be able to gauge learning objectives and identify learning needs. The instructional process as a whole is informed and guided (at least that’s how it should be) by results gleaned from evaluative procedures. There are actually different evaluation models out there, the infographic below, features 4 of the most popular among them. The one that stands out to us from the list is Kirkpatrick’s model of training and education. This model is composed of four major levels:
- Level Four−Results: To what degree targeted outcomes occur, as a result of learning event(s) and subsequent reinforcement.
- Level Three−Behaviour: To what degree participants apply what they learned during training when they are back on the job and attitudes based on their participation in the learning event
- Level Two−Learning: To what degree participants acquire the intended knowledge, skills.
- Level One−Reaction: To what degree participants react favourably to the learning event.
