Want More Value from Evaluation? AIM to Answer Two Questions

TK2020 Event: Thurs, February 6, 9:00AM – 10:00AM
While almost all learning is evaluated, less than half of organizations report that evaluation helps meet their learning and business goals. Data create no value. People acting on meaningful data within the L&D process create value. The Alignment and Impact Model (AIM) focuses evaluation on helping all stakeholders create value. AIM incorporates purpose, process, stakeholder roles, and two questions to guide evaluation design and focuses on maximizing learning, transfer, and impact. Examples demonstrate the fundamentals of AIM and how it can be implemented and used.

So, how can we improve instructor impact on learning?

Two Fundamental Questions L&D Stakeholders Should Answer to Improve Learning

During recent conference presentations and webinars focused on analytics, big data and evaluation, we noticed audience members asking, “What questions should I be asking [and answering with evaluation data and analytics]?” Speakers typically answer these questions one of two ways: either by recommending collecting specific types or “levels” of data, as if all relevant questions for all learning and development stakeholders should be immediately identified and addressed; or by recommending collecting and tagging as much data as possible so the data analysts figure it out, as if the important questions will only emerge from analyzing all the data after the fact.

Qualitatively Different Measurement for Training Reactions

Training evaluation should provide insights not only about the effectiveness of training but also about how it can be improved for learners and organizations. In this context, the term “insights” implies a deep understanding of learning, the training process and its outcomes as well as evaluation procedures – designing, measuring, collecting, integrating and analyzing data from both a formative and summative perspective.
