Assessing Training and Writing Learning Outcome
Lawson Text: Chapters 1 and 5
Research and find a self-assessment tool to use in your assignment for this lesson. Give the site,
the type, how it will be used, and any other important information about the assessment of either
the learner or the training itself.
At this point in the course, you should be closer to starting, if not already started, researching and
writing your training program. In the process of getting it together, it is important that you have
at least clear goals in mind. This assignment encourages you to write those goals before
completing the rest of the assignment. That is your first assignment.
Once the goals are clearly written, giving you direction for the development of the rest of your
training program, you can start developing your assessment instrument(s).
Your assignment, therefore, is to choose one type of assessment tool, one mentioned in either the
Study Notes or in your reading assignment. Then choose one strategy approach to accomplish
your main goal. Identify your purpose, your goal, which tool (self-assessment type or learning
outcomes type), and your strategy targeting such things as behavioral, cognitive, virtual reality,
holistic, etc., elements.
NOTE: There are many different elements and components to this assignment. Please be sure
that you complete each in order for the assignment to be completely answered.
Also, there are no right or wrong formats to use. Making your assessment tool description clear
is the key to having someone else understand how it is used in your session and to prepare for the
possibility that someone else may want to use it in their session.
The following is one example, but it is not the only type, format, or strategy that can be used.
Use it as a guide for each element, including the instructions, the goal, how it is used, what it
measures, and how participants can benefit from this particular assessment tool.
You can use the following outline for presenting your information:
1. Title of the Tool
2. Type of Tool (self-assessment or learning outcomes assessment)
3. Content or Training Area
4. Actual Assessment Activities (this is the crux of this assignment – identify the elements of
the actual tool you have developed)
Title: Behavioral Styles Environment Chart
Type: Self-Assessment Instrument
The purpose of this activity is to give participants a sense of all the different behavior styles in
the room. All the participants create a Post-it note listing their name and dominant style and
place it in the proper location on the Behavioral Styles Environment Chart (identified at the end
of this section).
Actual Assessment Activities:
What you will need: Flip Chart (paper)
NOTE: The facilitator can create the Behavioral Styles Environment Chart while the participants
are completing their individual assessments. The Chart uses the following behavioral types:
It would be necessary at this point in your “real assessment instrument” to describe each of the
types listed above so that the participants can identify one as their own.
How It Works:
After participants have identified their own type, ask them to do the following:
Write their first name and the first initial of their last name on a Post-it note and then write
their dominant type right below their name.
Ask them to place the Post-it note in the appropriate space on the Chart. Also would like it to be focused on a humanism aspect
