Evaluation in the Implementation Phase
Evaluation in the Implementation Phase takes many forms. The Kirkpatrick Model is a popular summative evaluation model used to evaluate training programs. It is most appropriately used in the implementation phase after the product is stable (i.e., fully developed) to determine if learning has occurred and what impact the learning has inspired. However, other evaluation activities might also include an implementation fidelity study, negative case analysis, and exploring unintended consequences that result from the products use or programs implementation.
