Evaluation Issues in HRD.
These three papers were presented at a symposium on evaluation issues on human resource development (HRD) moderated by Hallie Preskill at the 1996 conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development. "Designing an Effective 360-Degree Appraisal Feedback Process" (David Antonioni) presents a conceptual model for a 360-degree appraisal feedback process as a guide to help HRD practitioners attain desired outcomes for 360-degree appraisals. "A Survey about Training Evaluation Practices in Selected Organizations" (William J. Rothwell) summarizes the results of a 1995 survey of American Society for Training and Development members that showed that most training evaluation is conducted by HRD professionals and that course evaluations remained the most frequently used method."Comparing the Predicted and Actual Benefits of HRD Programs" (Ronald L. Jacobs, Maria T. Hruby) reports on a study of forecasted versus actual benefits of HRD interventions. The study first forecasted the expected benefits of a structured versus an unstructured on-the-job training program for two tasks, then evaluated actual benefits versus the predicted benefits, with the resulting implications then discussed. Papers contain references. (KC)
