Making Sense Out of Evaluation Data
Do your measurement and evaluation efforts help you to achieve your department’s learning goals? Also, what about your organization’s business goals? If the answer is “no,” you’re not alone.
According to a recent ATD research study, only 50% of organizations view their evaluation efforts as helping them achieve their learning goals. And only 40% think that their evaluation efforts help them achieve their organization's business goals. Yet, when appropriately designed and interpreted correctly, learning program evaluations provide a rich source of information and actionable insight for learning and development departments and business executives alike. Examples include: whether to continue or discontinue a training program, how to improve a program, and whether or not a program provided value. Evaluations also enable L&D departments to operate as a business by measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of what they offer. Unfortunately, this is not an area where many L&D professionals have much experience nor strong skill sets.
Bring this informative, highly engaging session in-house to your L&D team. Provide them with practical tips and guidelines on how to make sense out of both quantitative and qualitative data collected using Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 evaluations. Remember, collecting evaluation data is only half the job, making sense out of it is the other half!
