​Blended Evaluation™ is the latest way to evaluate the effectiveness of your training programs. Are you using it?

Blended evaluation is a methodology in which data are collected from multiple sources using multiple methods, in a blended fashion that considers all four Kirkpatrick levels, for the purpose of monitoring, reporting and adjusting findings to maximize program performance and subsequent organizational results. 

Blended evaluation is purposeful; it is based on information required to make good training decisions (usefulness) and provide the data required by stakeholders to fund it (credibility). Blended evaluation is then deliberate in that it is based on purpose. This methodology is primarily for, but not exclusive to, training.

Pre-Order Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation
June 17, 2016

You can now pre-order Jim and Wendy's new book, Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation.

Discover a complete blueprint for implementing the model in a way that truly maximizes business results. And delve into Jim and Wendy’s new findings that, together with Don Kirkpatrick’s work, create the New World Kirkpatrick Model, a powerful methodology that melds people with metrics.



Kirkpatrick Partners is a provider of training evaluation and business partnership training, products, consulting and impact studies. Our work is based on the Kirkpatrick Evaluation Model created by Donald L. Kirkpatrick in 1954 as part of his PhD dissertation on the evaluation of the effectiveness of training for supervisors. It is expanded by the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model and Kirkpatrick Foundational Principles.

Instead of training ROI, we focus on training return on expectations (ROE). This is a more holistic measurement of all of the benefits realized from a program or initiative, both qualitative and quantitative. We offer courses and workshops on training evaluation and business partnership that equip training professionals to create, demonstrate and measure the business results and value their training yields or supports.

Don's son James (Jim) and daughter-in-law Wendy are pleased to carry on his legacy through Kirkpatrick Partners. Whether you want to earn your Kirkpatrick certification or simply create more value in your organization, we are here to help. Our programs are valuable whether you are a corporate employee, member of government or an independent consultant.

The Kirkpatricks are the authors of nine books, including Evaluating Training Programs, Implementing the Four Levels, Transferring Learning to Results, Kirkpatrick Then and Now, Training on Trial, and The Brunei Window Washer: Bringing Business Partnership to Life.
