This is an independent project for students to demonstrate their learning.
This assignment is intended to develop students’ hands-on experience in learning HRD/TECH program evaluation. Among other things, the objectives include
Obtaining service learning-based experience
Gaining in-depth knowledge on real world evaluation and measurement project
Applying models and methods covered in the course
Practicing analytical and critical thinking
Identify an HRD/TECH program in an organization and conduct an evaluation and measurement project. You may conduct any levels of evaluation per Kirkpatrick’s taxonomy beyond level one. In other words, no reaction level evaluation will be accepted. Ideally, your project report is to be a service for a host organization or a community to improve the effectiveness of a learning related program.
The evaluation report should at least include the following:
1.Describe a selected training or HRD program and the background of the organization. (Answer the question of “what is happening?”)
2.Specify the evaluation question. (Answer the question of “what are you trying to evaluate?”)
3.Discuss the evaluation method. (Answer the question of “What approach is used?”)
4.Explain the data collection process. (Answer the question of “where the data comes from?” and “how the data is collected?”)
5.Describe your analysis and report the findings/results. (Answer the question of “how do you analyze the data and what have you found?)
6.Discuss recommendations to the program and the organization based on the evaluation results. (Answer the question of “So what?”)
7.Discuss lessons learned from the project.
You are encouraged to be creative in your evaluation report and you must include the above seven components in your final report. The following is a recommended structure for the report:
Program Evaluation Report — Content Outline Guide
