Kirkpatrick’s Learning Evaluation Model

Kirkpatrick’s Model was created by Donald Kirkpatrick, PhD., and defines the four levels of training evaluation. The four levels of evaluation are: (1) the reaction of the student and their thoughts about the training experience; (2) the student’s resulting learning and increase in knowledge from the training experience; (3) the student’s behavioral change and improvement after applying the skills on the job; and (4) the results or effects that the student’s performance has on the business.
