The TrainingCheck Approach to Training Evaluation
The TrainingCheck training evaluation system was created out of a large-scale project involving a range of employers and training providers.
Extensive research and consultations were carried out to define training evaluation methods which could both produce powerful results and, crucially, would be practical for organisations to implement. The evaluation model which emerged out of this research was then developed into an online tool, and this was then tested and trialled across a wide variety of organisations and sectors.
Kirkpatrick Four Levels and ROE
The Return On Expectations model model of training evaluation evolved out of Donald Kirkpatrick’s famous ‘Four Level' model. This model was originally developed in the 1950s and was for many years regarded as the industry standard in evaluation across the training and Human Resources communities.
The four levels referred to in the model are:
Level 1: Participant Reaction
Level 2: Learning
Level 3: Job Impact
Level 4: Business Impact
The Kirkpatrick Four Levels and ROE within TrainingCheck
TrainingCheck provides integrated support for both the original Kirkpatrick Four Level model and the ROE model by providing:
• Detailed guidance on planning, creating, carrying out and reporting on training evaluations in line with the Four Level and ROE models
• Web-based, automated processes for designing, carrying out, analysing and reporting on evaluations at each of the Kirkpatrick levels
• A comprehensive Question Library subdivided into the Kirkpatrick levels (for ease of use we call these ‘topic areas’ within the Library)
• Ready-made, customisable example training evaluations at each of the Kirkpatrick levels – ie Participant Reaction, Learning, Job Impact (both participant and manager views), and Business Impact.
