Any training device or training system must be evaluated to insure that the training provided by the system is effective. As discussed in Chapter One, evaluation is a major phase of training system development and is the basis for determining when a training program requires modification, or when whole new training approaches are required. Some evaluations can also be used in selecting training approaches for new training programs. Much of the research to be discussed in subsequent chapters was designed to evaluate training device design and use. This chapter provides an overview of training effectiveness evaluation so that the subsequent discussions of research will be more meaningful to the reader. One should not, however, think of training effectiveness evaluation as a one-time effort. It is rather an ongoing process with the goal of constantly improving the effectiveness of the training system.
