This much-needed book offers trainers, consultants, evaluation professionals, and human resource executives and practitioners a hands-on resource for understanding and applying the proven principles of confirmative evaluation. Confirmative evaluation is a marriage of evaluation and continuous improvement. Unlike other types of evaluation—which are used during the design of a learning program or applied immediately after conducting a program—confirmative evaluation follows several months after the program is implemented. It tests the endurance of outcomes, the return on investment, and establishes the effectivenss, efficiency, impact, and value of the training over time.
ABSTRACT CONFIRMATIVE EVALUATION: A NEW LEVEL TO THE CIPP PROGRAM EVALUATION MODEL By Tia L. Finney August 2020 Advisor: Dr. Shlomo Sawilowsky Major: Education, Evaluation and Research Degree: Doctor of Philosophy Struggling trainees often require a substantial investment of time, effort, and resources from medical educators. An emergent challenge involves developing effective ways to accurately identify struggling students and better understand the primary causal factors underlying their poor performance. Identifying the potential reasons for poor performance in medical school is a key first step in developing suitable remediation plans (Artino, et al., 2010). The SOM Modified Program is a remediation program that aims to ensure academic success for medical students. The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of modifying the CIPP evaluation model by adding a confirmative evaluation step to the model. This will be carried out by conducting a program evaluation of Wayne State University0́9s School of Medicine Modified Program to determine its effectiveness for student success. The key research questions for this study are 1) How effective is the Modified Program for student0́9s success in the SOM? 2) Do students benefit from a modified program in medical school? 3) Will the CIPP program evaluation model become more effective by adding confirmative evaluation component?
Updated and revised, the sixth edition equips educators with practical skills for successful instructional design. Two new chapters have been added to offer the most current information in the field. One addresses the unique design challenges and opportunities when working with different technologies. It also illustrates how to apply and adapt the design model when working with these technologies. The other presents a combination of information on the ID proposal and project management. A new section also discusses the alternatives to the traditional design process. In addition, educators will find more information about the role of the designer, which they’ll be able to apply in the classroom.
Each volume in this set provides a current review of all information available for the three core areas of improving performance in the workplace: instructional design and training delivery, intervention selection and implementation, measurement and evaluation.

This book explores issues in understanding managing evaluation: an often invisible process guiding evaluation studies, evaluators, other workers and evaluation units. The chapters define and illustrate through four case studies. Central questions in the domain of managing are: Should the evaluation field recognize managing as a core professional expertise? Should it promote this by legitimizing preparation of experts and expertise? What should curriculum, pedagogy, and learning sites be? The authors suggest beginning foci, curricula, and pedagogy in managing evaluation and wish to stimulate reflection and conversation within our profession on how to manage evaluation in various contexts and multiple layers.
