Description: A popular methodology for judging training outcomes is Donald Kirkpatrick’s Four Level Evaluation Model. Most course evaluations are conducted at the first level of the model. In order to measure outcomes at the second level of the Kirkpatrick model, this study used an Audience Response System (ARS) to administer the same multiple choice questions before and after a course on evaluation principles. The comparison of the pre and post test scores were used as an indicator of the acquisition of knowledge and skills, the second level of the Kirkpatrick model. In addition, the results from both the pre and post test were instrumental in helping clarify and set the course objectives, and stimulate discussion.
