  • to use Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation
  • to work individually or on a team to design and implement evaluation instruments
  • to use resource material to select evaluation methods that effectively support training efforts
  • to collect, analyze, and communicate data generated from evaluation instruments that quantify results of training programs
