Evaluation: The Link Between Learning and Performance

Roger ChevalierWith Roger Chevalier

“You can’t improve it if you can’t measure it” (Lord Kelvin, 1883). Managers need information with which to make decisions. Systematic evaluation of efforts and results will not only provide this information but also encourage improved performance. Although evaluation has always had a place in instructional design and performance improvement, few programs are systematically evaluated to see if participants change their behavior (Level 3) or if individual and organizational performance (Level 4) was actually improved. This session will present three case studies in which performance was improved through systematic evaluation. Following the presentation of each case study, participants will interact in a guided discussion of evaluation principles and practices.
