Linking Outcomes to Objectives

Objectives to Outcomes

Options for Evaluating Activities

Evaluations can be conducted using various methods and techniques:

  1. The simplest level is satisfaction and the degree to which the learner’s expectations were met
  2.  At the other extreme is research in which the evaluator attempts to employ experimental design so as to gain an understanding of the actual outcomes of the program that can be attributed directly to the education intervention.
  3.  It is very important to identify clearly at which level you wish to conduct the evaluation
  4. Formats are also varied from using the simple paper/online questionnaire, to performance-based tests
