Evaluating Training Effectiveness and Student Learning

ATOM Training crafts assessments that have measurable qualitative and quantitative metrics, which provide visibility into key performance indicators regarding the quality and level of student learning. Empirical evidence shows that evaluation (if directly related to the objectives) is one of the best ways to increase learning and retention because it gives students the opportunity to use new information.

Assessments serve as ongoing quality control for training effectiveness. We use the Kirkpatrick four-step measurement process to evaluate learning. Evaluation tools are administered pre- and post- training. If a particular question or section yields quantitative data resulting in lower post-test scores over time in the same course, ATOM’s curriculum developers and instructional designers review training materials, practical exercises, and student guides to identify deficiencies and craft improvements.
