Level 3 Evaluations Made Simple, Credible, and Actionable

Program Description:

Knowing whether or not participants apply back on the job what they learned in a training program is a critical issue for both L&D and the executives L&D supports. Demonstrating that learning is applied speaks directly to L&D's ability to be viewed as a credible business partner. However, according to an ROI Institute research study, only 11% of CEOs reported receiving this type of information.

So, why don't more L&D departments conduct Level 3 evaluations? A frequent answer is because it's too complicated. A second reason is that many L&D professionals lack the knowledge and skills needed to collect and analyze Level 3 data.

In this informative, highly engaging session, participants will learn how to implement a revolutionary new easy-to-use Level 3 evaluation methodology that produces credible, actionable data.     

ATD Capability Model:

Evaluating Impact; Knowledge of qualitative and quantitative data collection methods, techniques, and tools; and Skill in creating data collection tools such as focus groups and structured interviews.

Learning Objectives:

    • After participating in this session participants will be able to use facts from a recent ATD research study to benchmark the use of Level 3 evaluations in an organization.
    • After participating in this session participants will be able to conduct focus groups using three key questions to collect the data needed to conduct a Level 3 evaluation.
    • After participating in this session participants will be able to calculate the best case, worst-case, and most likely case training transfer percentages using the estimation technique.
