Recently I have been reviewing Kirkpatrick's four levels of training evaluation ( reaction, learning, behavior, and results ) because we have an online teacher training at Ventura College that prepares faculty to teach online in Canvas by helping them design an introductory module and an academic module for an upcoming course.   As we are evaluating our training program, the question arises how does one measure these levels of organizational change?  Would you be willing to share any unique measurements or unique goals?  Do you build the evaluation into the training?  Do you strive for level three and four changes such as behavior changes and results changes?  What is a training session that has gone well and reached these higher levels of organizational change?  How do you know?
