Evaluation Training Program
Evaluation Training Program.
Develop a training program to teach trainees how to effectively evaluate training. Your team will teach the trainees the correct techniques and methods for conducting training evaluation at one of the following levels: Learning, Behavior/Transfer, Results, or ROI (not the reaction level). Use course content and information from a minimum of 5 other sources. Include the APA cite for each source used.
The following is some of the information that should be included in the program relevant to the level of evaluation your team covers: importance, when, how, best practices or guidelines, common mistakes, examples, etc.
Learning Objectives-write at least 3 learning objectives that cover what trainees are expected to know or be able to do at the end of the training program and what they will be assessed on at the end of the program. (LO should be included in the PP and covered in the presentation)
Icebreaker-pick an Ice Breaker that would be appropriate for your training program. (Include a slide in the PP showing when in program and include a copy of the ice breaker)
Program Content-develop a PP presentation that covers the content and includes each of the 9 events in Gagne’. (Can include u-tube videos, demonstrations, examples, etc)
Practice and/or Application Activity-develop a practice and/or application activity relevant to the content of your program (Include a slide in the PP showing when in program and a copy of the activity)
Handout or Job Aid-develop a one-page handout that can be used as a quick reference or job aid by the trainee after the program.
Assessment-list each learning objective and state specifically how each LO will be assessed at the end of the program. If it is a written assessment, include at least 2 assessment questions that can be used to evaluate that LO. If it is a performance test, state what trainees will have to do and include a checklist that will be used to evaluate performance.
Training Program: Effective Evaluation Training
At the end of the training program, trainees will be able to:
Understand the importance of training evaluation and the different levels of evaluation.
Identify the appropriate techniques and methods for conducting evaluation at the desired level.
Apply best practices and guidelines for conducting evaluation and avoid common mistakes.
Icebreaker: The Two Truths and a Lie Game
Trainees introduce themselves by sharing three statements about themselves, two of which are true and one of which is false. The other participants have to guess which statement is false.

Practice and/or Application Activity:
Trainees will be divided into groups and assigned a level of evaluation. They will work together to design an evaluation plan for a hypothetical training program, using the best practices and guidelines learned during the training.
A one-page handout will be provided that summarizes the different levels of evaluation, the appropriate techniques and methods for conducting evaluation at each level, and best practices and guidelines for conducting evaluation.
Learning Objective 1: Understand the importance of training evaluation and the different levels of evaluation.
Assessment question 1: Why is training evaluation important?
Assessment question 2: What are the different levels of evaluation?
Learning Objective 2: Identify the appropriate techniques and methods for conducting evaluation at the desired level.
Performance test: Design an evaluation plan for a hypothetical training program at the assigned level of evaluation, using the best practices and guidelines learned during the training. Evaluation checklists will be used to assess performance.
Learning Objective 3: Apply best practices and guidelines for conducting evaluation and avoid common mistakes.
Assessment question 1: What are some best practices and guidelines for conducting evaluation?
Assessment question 2: What are some common mistakes to avoid during evaluation?
