Cost Analysis, Evaluation and Feedback. Symposium.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on cost analysis, evaluation, and feedback in human resource development. "Training Evaluation with 360-Degree Feedback" (Froukje A. Jellema) reports on a quasi-experimental study that examined the effectiveness of 360-degree feedback in evaluating the training received by nurses in a Dutch hospital and yielded evidence indicating that, contrary to expectations, greater levels of behavioral change occurred among the controls than among the nurses with whom 360-degree feedback was used. "Theory-Driven Evaluation: An Alternative" (Katie Robertson) offers theory-driven evaluation as a model that is better capable of accounting for the complex relationship between human resource development (HRD) interventions and intended outcomes than existing HRD evaluation models. "Creation and Utilization of Evaluative Information for Organizational Learning" (Youngsook Song) draws upon the literature to define the meaning of organizational learning and examine organizational conditions enabling organizations to promote learning at different levels and in different ways. "The Effects of Performance Feedback upon Small Businesses: A Literature Review" (Sonji Lee, Karen K. Yarrish, Patricia Bederman Miller) explores the literature on performance feedback in small businesses and investigates the relationships and significance of performance feedback to the theory and practice of human resource development. The last three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
