Abstract : Many have stated that training evaluation depends on accurate specification of its objectives, the criteria by which those objectives are measured and the organizational constraints within which training's effects must be realized. Few have recognized, however, that the utility of an evaluation depends on considering the different needs of the publics that may be interested in the evaluation. Five publics are identified here and their needs outlined. They are: (1) Trainees, (2) Trainers, (3) Sponsoring Organizations, (4) Training Technicians, (5) Social Scientists. Various evaluation techniques including global designs, internal consistency and validity techniques; miniature experiments and comparison studies, are then presented. Each of these is comprehensively defined and its relevance to one or another of the above mentioned publics is discussed. (Author)
