Blended Learning

Evaluation Phase

The final phase of the ADDIE model pertains to the Evaluation of the learning program. There are many reasons to want to evaluate the learning programs that have been deployed within an organization. For example, collecting participant feedback on the training they have received can help improve the learning experience for future participants.

As well, assessing participants’ understanding and retention of what was covered in training can help identify whether the training strategy was effective. Evaluation also helps identify any misunderstandings or knowledge gaps. Finally, finding out how new learning is being applied/ transferred into the workplace helps identify any behavioral gaps and/or improvements to be made.

ADDIE - Evaluate

Deliverables We Offer:

1.  Level 1 Evaluation – Reaction

Kirkpatrick Level 1 Evaluations serve to gather subjective feedback from participants about the effectiveness of the learning program and of the instructor. Results are used to improve the learning experience.

2.  Level 2 Evaluation – Learning

Kirkpatrick Level 2 Evaluations assess the proficiency of learners at a specific point following training. They are very useful to diagnose weaknesses, learning gaps and areas to revisit. Level 2 assessments can be an online quiz as well as specific tasks to perform within a training environment.  Trainers and managers can then assess each learner’s acquired knowledge and understanding of the new IT system, and if need be, provide complementary instruction on those weaker knowledge, or proficiency areas.

3.  Level 3 Evaluation – Behavior

Kirkpatrick Level 3 Evaluation measures the degree to which learners are able to transfer their learning to their on-the-job behaviors.  An evaluation grid per role can be designed to help managers and supervisors assess workers’ proficiency while conducting their work on-the-job or in the field.  Any shortcomings identified can then serve as invaluable input for subsequent training.
