Evaluation in HRD. Symposium 29. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on evaluation in human resource development (HRD). "Utilization of Corporate University Training Program Evaluation" (Christopher F. Bober) reports on a study that examined how training program evaluation results are being utilized in corporate universities and determined that the following seven factors affect how four corporate universities are utilizing program evaluation data: communication quality; timeliness; commitment and/or receptiveness to evaluation; evaluation quality; credibility; relevance; and findings. "Organizational Readiness for Learning and Evaluation" (Hallie Preskill, Brenda Martinez-Papponi, Rosalie T. Torres) discusses the outcomes of implementation of a diagnostic instrument designed to assess organizations' readiness for learning and evaluation. The instrument was used with eight U.S. organizations and found to be capable of identifying areas of strength on which to build evaluation efforts and areas in need of development for creating and sustaining learning from evaluation work. "Three Perspectives of Training Evaluation Based on Organizational Needs" (Eul-Kyoo Bae, Ronald L. Jacobs) argues that HRD professionals must place more emphasis on matching the intents of evaluation, the intended users, and aspects of the evaluative process and information. Three perspectives of stakeholders on evaluation of training were developed as a means for ensuring the match between evaluation intents and activities. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
