Evaluation in Human Resource Development.
These four papers are from a symposium on evaluation in human resource development (HRD). "Assessing Organizational Readiness for Learning through Evaluative Inquiry" (Hallie Preskill, Rosalie T. Torres) reviews how evaluative inquiry can facilitate organizational learning; argues HRD evaluation should be reconceptualized as a process for assisting learning; and describes efforts to develop an instrument HRD professionals can use to assess an organization's readiness to engage in learning through evaluative inquiry. "The Design and Development of an Evaluation System for Online Instruction" (Tim L. Wentling, Scott D. Johnson) describes development of a system using computer technology to provide partial automation. "The Mixed-Method Evaluation in HRD--A Description of Methods Applied in the Industrial Development Program" (Ville Nurmi) describes a study in the Finnish paper industry that concluded that mixed-methods is a purposeful design when the aim is to assess a large program from multiple viewpoints. "The Effect of Two Training Systems on Trainee Satisfaction, Learning, Job Behavior, Retention and Organizational Performance" (Maria Hruby Moore) compares a manager-led, self-paced videotape delivery system and an instructor-led group method over two-way interactive videoconferencing and finds no significant difference between trainee satisfaction, learning, and individual job performance outcomes but significant differences between learning ratings, retention rate, and organizational performance measures.
