Evaluation of Training: Strategy, Tactics and Problems. Training Information Sources, No. 3.
Trice, Harrison M.; Roman, Paul M.
The purpose of the literature review is to outline the basic considerations involved in designing and conducting meaningful evaluation of training efforts in work organizations. First to be examined are basic questions in training evaluation strategy: the barriers to conducting evaluation of training efforts, the reasons for conducting such evaluation, where and when such evaluation should enter the training process, and who should conduct such evaluation. Following this is a consideration of six approaches whereby evaluative questions may be posed, including an outline of the assumptions of each along with their advantages and disadvantages. The tactics of evaluation of training efforts and the bases for choosing different tactical approaches are two major concerns dealt with. Concluding the document are a discussion of recent trends in training evaluation and a seven-page bibliography. (Author/MW)
