From what I usually hear, about half of the participants send out a survey after instructor-led sessions. And that’s it. Some don’t evaluate at all while only a small number of participants get to level two or three of Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model. Elearning is often not evaluated at all. It looks like a common problem with only 27% of businesses having a framework to measure the effectiveness of their training, according to Brendon Hall research (November 2022).
“How do you evaluate your courses?” I always ask this question when it’s time to discuss evaluation with participants in an instructional design course. Well, let’s be honest. ADDIE does end with an E for Evaluation for a reason. And then I’m not even talking about evaluating the design process, because that’s often a bridge too far.
Let’s look into the main reasons to evaluate training before discussing common excuses (and countering them).
