Achieving the training objectives should go well beyond the program into real-life application. Backgrounder This training program is developed for college students in an attempt to provide useful knowledge in time management. As discussed in the develop stage, the whole program is intended for whole class lecture/discussion set-up with the use of various visual aids and the guidance of a trainer or trainers. The implement stage discussed the delivery format to ensure that management and logistics issues will be avoided, or their possibilities lessened. The evaluate stage will then assess: 1) how the students reacted to every course module, 2) the effectiveness of the delivery method, and; 3) the effectiveness of the assessment tools. Formative and Summative Evaluation Tools Rationale The Performance Appraisal Rating System (Robbins and DeCenzo 297) graph will be used as the basis for the evaluation graph. Modification is necessary to ensure that the evaluate stage's objectives will be met with accuracy. The students, the program's delivery methods and assessments tools will be evaluated based on the program's overall objectives. The evaluation tool is designed to acquire detailed information in the easiest manner. Since assessing the effects and changes in the participants' time management skills are hard to qualify and quantify, and might take a long time to acquire, the evaluation will mainly aim to gather the immediate and short-term results rather than long term ones. Formative Evaluation
This will be the evaluation tool to be used to gauge the program's design, development, and implementation. This is to ensure the the whole process of creating the training program meets the overall objectives stated in the analyze stage. Fig. 1: Program Appraisal Tool Rate each stage of the program according to the following categories: Category According to Stage/Program Objectives Beginner Advanced Intermediate Expert Comments Design Quality: Consider the visual aids for the whole class lecture and discussion set-up. Develop Initiative: Consider the participants' ability to work individually and in groups. Develop Punctuality: Consider the adherence to set schedules and time frames and the timeliness in addressing participants' concerns and queries. Implement Trainer requirements: Consider the selection of trainers and facilitators. Implement Strategy: Consider the teaching and learning approaches. OVERALL RATING: * Based on the Performance Appraisal Rating System (Robbins and DeCenzo, 2010, p.297) Summative Evaluation This will be the evaluation tool to be used to gauge the participants' reaction to and comprehension of the training program. The evaluation will be on a per module basis, assessed against the module's learning objectives. Fig. 2: Participant's Appraisal Tool Module I Purpose: This module is designed to help students identify the causes of time management failures. Teaching Approach: Lectures and individual activities. Module 1 Objectives: Expected Accomplishments: Comments: Teach students the essence of managing lives and time. Students should be able to identify and reflect on personal experiences regarding good and bad time management. Successful individual activity Teach students the importance of setting priorities and goals. Students should be able to create and reflect on a time log that shows how they really use their time as against how they want to use it.
