An Example of a Qualitative Evaluation of Performance Change from a Train the Trainer Seminar Intervention. Instructional Development Technical Report Number 26.
Torrence, David R.
The National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP) is a training trust established by an industry trade association and a union to maintain the supply of well-trained competent elevator mechanics. The NEIEP conducts Train the Trainer seminars that present a skill-building program to give each instructor a range of techniques and strategies for teaching and learning. A qualitative evaluation of the effectiveness of one of the seminars was conducted. A Level 1 (introductory) seminar was evaluated by participants at a Level 2 (more advanced) seminar about a year later. Participants indicated the impact that the initial seminar had on their performance as an instructor. Data from the evaluation were classified according to competency area and then presented to participants on the second day of the Level 2 seminar. The purpose was to illustrate techniques of formative evaluation for the seminar participants. Several inferences about the impact of the Level 1 seminar are possible. Students learned and put into practice some new planning and instructional techniques. They retained an acceptable amount of information about adult learning and applied it to some degree, and they learned and used evaluation techniques. The Level 1 seminar appears successful in providing basic cognitive knowledge and promoting performance change. Five tables summarize evaluation questions and responses. (SLD)
