KnowledgePool launches white paper on evaluation
Managed learning services company KnowledgePool has launched a white paper on how to evaluate learning outcomes.
The company says the white paper outlines a new approach which learning & development practitioners can use to assess their training portfolio and measure the impact of their learning interventions.
Kevin Lovell, learning strategy director at KnowledgePool, said: "Current evaluation practice tends to measure factors such as the achievement of course objectives, the trainer's delivery skills, the support materials and the venue. Most organisations don't have the resources or time to evaluate learning outcomes and they don't know how to demonstrate the benefits of learning effectively.
"This paper outlines a standard methodology which organisations can use to conduct behavioural change and business benefit evaluations - that is, Kirkpatrick levels 3 and 4 - for any learning intervention. It narrows the gap considerably between level 1 'reactionaries' at one extreme and a quantified return on investment at the other."
KnowledgePool says the white paper, 'Getting the Value out of Evaluation', can be downloaded free from it's website: www.knowledgepool.com/downloads/home.html
