Developing Level 2 Learning Assessments Program

Developing Level 2 Learning Assessments Program Overview

(Formerly Developing Effective Assessments)

When developing and delivering workplace learning, it is critical to analyze its effectiveness. One of the most commonly used methods to evaluate learning solutions identifies four levels:


Level 1 assessment—the questionnaires we all use at the end of the learning program only capture the learners’ feelings about the program. FKA’s Developing Level 2 Learning Assessments focuses on level 2 assessment that confirms learning has actually taken place. Using your real-world content and FKA’s powerful guidelines and checklists, you will create assessment questions that are reliable, valid, fair, and defensible.

The program also examines the actions required to ensure the learning transfers back to the job so that level 3 assessments will show the desired performance improvement.
