Abstract :

Testing employee competencies can provide trainers with an evaluation method which can reveal the long-term relevance of training in terms of what material is being retained and what course objectives are being met. The evaluation tests the operational knowledge of employees rather than the theoretical knowledge tested by post-training questionnaires and tests. Course goals are distilled into competencies, case studies are written addressing the competencies, and trained personnel are asked three to six months after training how they would handle the case study in a real-life work situation.
