The Kirkpatrick Model

The Kirkpatrick Model is the standard for leveraging and validating talent investments.

The four levels of evaluation — Reaction, Learning, Behavior, and Results — form the time – tested and most trusted method of designing, implementing, and evaluating training that produces bottom-line value and organizational mission accomplishment.

Where Did The Four Levels Come From?

Dr. Don Kirkpatrick was Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin and Honorary Chairman of Kirkpatrick Partners until his passing in May 2014.

An innovator and visionary thinker, Don created and developed The Kirkpatrick Model, the most recognized and widely-used training evaluation model in the world. He established the Four Levels of Evaluation framework in the 1950s, around the time he completed his Ph.D. dissertation, Evaluating a Human Relations Training Program for Supervisors.
