The Academy of Program/Project and Engineering Leadership (APPEL) shares their success using the Kirkpatrick Model to evaluate their program effectiveness for The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Read more in this guest feature reprinted with permission.

APPEL Goes Gold

APPEL supports NASA by providing development and training for the agency’s technical workforce. To reinforce the value of its offerings, the Academy recently brought home the gold. 

APPEL takes the design, development, and delivery of courses extremely seriously, as they are critical components of training. Just as important is confirming the value of the training. The Academy accomplishes this by evaluating the effectiveness of its offerings. Evaluation allows APPEL to assess whether its programs meet learner needs and objectives, whether knowledge and skills are imparted as intended, whether desired changes in performance are achieved, and what organizational benefits result from the training.

APPEL evaluates the effectiveness of all of its courses to confirm their value to NASA’s workforce. Here, participants in the course Project Management for non-Technical Managers, held in September 2016 at NASA Headquarters, explore the tools and techniques that are critical to planning and managing any project successfully. Credit: NASA/Dan Daly
