Topic #1 – Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation

Compare and contrast (1) online surveys (such as an online training workshop evaluation using products such as Survey Monkey or Qualtrics) with another type of evaluation tool (such as testing, interviews, or focus groups as examples). (2) Identify how each can best be used in a training evaluation. (3) Explain why these two evaluation tools can be an effective way to assess your training objectives. Be sure to use at least two resources from the class.
