Figure 2: Summary of Kirkpatrick Model
Level 1, Reaction, provides data on what the training participants thought of the training. The district collects informal data on teacher reaction to their trainings through the use of a reflection form. Level 2, Learning, measures the increase in skill level, knowledge, or capability of using a new tool. TTT PT Mod 3 participants’ skills are measured using a rubric to assess successful completion of their training (Appendix C). Kirkpatrick’s Level 3, Behavior, is when the

(Paradise & Patel, 2009). This study will review existing data on all levels; although the main focus is to collect data on Kirkpatrick’s Level 3 to identify transfer of learning from the TTT PT Mod 3 training.
Donald Kirkpatrick and his son, Jim, co-authored Transferring Learning Behavior (2005) which concentrated on Kirpatrick’s Level 3 Behavior. The researcher in this TTT study will obtain data on the transfer of learning and possible changes in the teachers’ behaviors as a result of completing the TTT PT Mod 3 training. Focusing on Level 3 is so critical because as Kirkpatrick (2009), stated “unless that training gets used on the job, it 's really worthless." The researcher of this study will survey training participants after they have graduated from the TTT program to provide insight into whether learning transfer has occurred by measuring the frequency of implementation of the technology tool presented in PT Mod 3 when teacher return to their work site.
The Kirkpatrick model has been applied to evaluate numerous training programs over the past 50 years. The Lay Trainer Learning program required trainers to use their own experiences as caregivers to train other family caregivers. (Conceição, Johaningsmeir, Colby, Gordon, 2014)
