After the blood, sweat, and tears you put into designing a learning experience, how do you know it made a difference? Ideally, you can measure Kirkpatrick Levels 1 ­– 4 following your education and be confident of your impact. More often, measuring changing behaviors in the real world is trickier due to issues like cost, or access, inherent in many performance environments (e.g., healthcare). What tools can bridge that gap?

In this session, you’ll learn how measuring learners’ confidence in their abilities, called self-efficacy, can give you insight into eventual changes in their behavior and performance. Learn about the underlying theory and evidence in support of self-efficacy measures. Learn tips and best practices for creating the individual assessment items and an overall self-efficacy tool tailored to the learning experiences you want to evaluate. You’ll leave the session with a new tool in your measurement toolbox that will get you one step closer to assessing the impact of your education on your learners.
