Tools for Training Program Evaluation (Hosted by TMN)

As part of our brand new partnership with Training Magazine Network, we are now featuring events presented by Presentation Guild members on the TMN site!

You’re ready to figure out whether your training programs are working, worth the investment of time and other resources, and meeting their goals. What tools do you need to conduct a training program evaluation?

Program evaluation is about applying systematic methods to collect, analyze, interpret, and communicate data about a program to understand its design, implementation, outcomes, or impacts. Simply put, it’s about asking good questions, gathering the right data, and using what we learn to make good decisions.

A robust program description and logic model are powerful tools that can inform a program evaluation plan. Well-designed surveys and focus groups are some of the most used tools for data collection. In this session Sheila will provide a brief overview of five phases of program evaluation and dive into key considerations for creating these tools.

In this session, attendees will learn:

  • The 5 phases of a program evaluation
  • Why a robust program description is essential
  • How to develop a program logic model
  • Key considerations for creating surveys and focus group protocols
