Immediate Evaluation of Training Events at the Economic Development Institute of the World Bank Measuring Reaction, Self-Efficacy and Learning in a Worldwide Context.
Le Rouzie, Violaine; Cusick, Mary
The Economic Development Institute of the World Bank (EDI) conducts extensive training events for a variety of audiences throughout the world. Over the years, EDI has used several types of instruments to evaluate these events. Drawing lessons from these experiences, this paper presents a "hierarchy" of training evaluation designs. These are: (1) one-time post-training design; (2) pre-post self-assessment; and (3) pre-post design for assessing learning. The pros and cons of self-assessment versus actual testing, one-time measure versus multiple measures, and how to introduce a "control group" in a feasible way for a training organization are discussed. The paper also addresses some measurement challenges due to the context of international development involving worldwide audiences. (Author/SLD)
