The Kirkpatrick Four-Level Training Evaluation Model is an instructional design model that helps training designers objectively measure the effectiveness of their training.
The four levels of evaluation outlined in this model are:
- Reaction: This measures the learners reaction or opinion of the training.
- Learning: This measures whether or not learners acquired the intended knowledge, skills, and attitudes.
- Behavior: This measures whether or not learners apply what they learned on the job.
- Results: This measures if the business goals were reached as a result of the training.
