Trainer’s Tip: Course Evaluation


Question Mark
Sarah Read explains why she wouldn’t use the tick box solution.

There are lots of different types of evaluation. My key points would be:

  • Only ask questions relating to areas you are prepared to change (for example, don’t ask about satisfactory venues etc if you can’t change locations.)

  • Tick boxes provide quick fix answers, but don’t necessarily reveal useful information; mix them with open questions for maximum information gathering.

  • Start with the end in mind; think carefully about what you want to evaluate – is it your coaching style, content etc. focus your evaluation around these areas.

  • Sometimes discussion groups can provide more information than paper forms as a free style ‘chat’ allows you to go with the flow of whatever points are raised.
