Dobrovolny, Jackie L.; Fuentes, Stephanie Christine G.
Performance Improvement, v47 n4 p7-14 Apr 2008
Evaluation is often avoided in human performance technology (HPT), but it is an essential and frequently catalytic activity that adds significant value to projects. Knowing how to approach an evaluation and whether to use qualitative, quantitative, or both methods makes evaluation much easier. In this article, we provide tools to help determine appropriate evaluation methods. Successful evaluation provides insightful data with which to make informed decisions.
