Recommended Reading Most training programs include at least a Level 1 evaluation. Often called “smile sheets,” this type of evaluation measures the reactions of the participants to the training. However, TD professionals should also measure whether or not the participants learned the content of the training and how well they were able to apply what they learned when they returned to their jobs (Levels 2 & 3). In addition, TD professionals should examine the effect of the training on organization-wide outcomes such as customer service, turnover, productivity, or profitability (Levels 4 & 5). The table provides examples of tools and measures that a TD professional can use at each level. Chapman, A. (1995-2014). Kirkpatrick’s learning and training evaluation theory. Retrieved from
