Evaluating Confidence Before, During and After the Course
To help with both the evaluation and design of the course, I've reviewed some alternatives in the LTDI Cookbook. As what I want to do is review progression of attitudes, skills and knowledge, the confidence log seems to be a good match. To design the one below I've taken each learning objective in turn and broken it into two to four statements for the delegate to give themselves a four point confidence rating from 1 (not at all confident) to 4 (completely confident). This version is of course open and public, for the course a bespoke version could be created that required a login which as well as giving group data (which could be merged across many groups) also could give before and after data for any individual.
I'd present the data (for example as a before and after course analysis) by placing the distribution of responses for each question side by side for the week before the course, and the week after completion.
