Evaluation – how do you do yours?


I am currently in the process of writing a dissertation on evaluation for a masters in personnel & development. If you can assist with any of the following I will be very grateful...

Using the Kirkpatrick levels, how high do you go?

Does your organisation insist on evaluation?

Does anyone outside of HR look at the results?

Can you send me your evaluation sheets?

In return for your help I will happily send you my findings when I have compiled everything should you be interested.

Best wishes,
Nikki Brun

  1. 4th level
    If you’re wanting to make it specific and work related, I’d have a look at taking your findings to level 4, there are lots of resources out there on the fourth level that are worth taking a look at.

  2. what is your thesis?
    Hi Nikki

    I’d be interested in knowing more. What is the central thesis of your 10,000 words?



  3. Some info…
    We try to evaluate to level 4 every time but in all honesty level 3 is sometimes all that’s practical in a start up environment.

    Yes, we insist on evaluation for all training programs – otherwise why train at all?

    All our evaluation results are circulated around the business to all relevant managers in all business functions. They are read and used as part of determining future requirements and individual evaluations are used as part of appraisals etc.

    I can’t send you one of our evaluation sheets though I’m afraid – as a business in “start up” phase all our internal documentation is currently held as confidential but drop me an e-mail in 3 months if you still need this and we might be able to release it then.

  4. Thank you…
    for your comments so far.

    I am seeing if level 4 evaluation can work in the real world – specifically in the busy retailer that I work for. I am benchmarking us against various other ompanies, so am trying to find the right ones.

    I think level 3 is pretty impressive, but could you do it for EVERY course? Is it worth it??
