Hi Friends,
I would like to get inputs from you all regarding a pre-training
assessment questionnaire. This questionnaire I am referring to is not
Training needs assessment questionnaire but a questionnaire administered
to the Participants before a training program commences. This can later
be evaluated with the final evaluation that we conduct at the end of a
training program.

Yep a survey questionnaire can be prepared before the training starts. But it is only worth while if your are having a post-training feedback done. This would help you do gap analysis in terms of "how the training training improved the employees/clients"
There are 2 ways of doing this..
1) A generic questionaire..
Have attached the attacment.
2) A questionaire related to training program...
This would include the questions related to your training program. Say Oracle.
Try to have a score card for each of the questions, so that end of the feedback session you would be able to find out, how much one has improved.

u can conduct an entry behaviour test(EBT) to gauge the knowledge level of trainees about the subjects that you are going to offer training in. It can consist of a 25 or 50 item questionpaper(objective-multiple choice).That will give you an input about the standard of the student before training. Once the training is finished u can conduct a final behaviour test or the final exam which will tell u how much the trainee has been able to grasp from the training. a comparison of the EBt and FBT will tell you how effective the training has been to aparticular trainee

Hello Chris,

What kind of Pretraining questinnaire would be used basically depends upon the seriousness of the organization.

The pretraining questinnaire can also be used to clarify the expectations of the participants and from the participants, what I mean is the it can also be used as a tool for introducing the training program to them ,why they are doing this program and how it is relate to their KRAs.The questions can be focussed on their competence levels in that skill and their expectations from the particular training program.

This basically helps the participants to prepare mentally for the training as well as the trainer as he can customize the training program according to the expectations of the particpants focussing on the live applications of the learning in their workplaces.

The organizations/ trainers can make the training more interesting and successful by solving the real problems of participants faced by them in the workplace related to their KRAs.

So , I think pre training questionnaires are a must for a successful and learning oriented training program and that is what I practice in my consultancy.

Hi all,
Perhaps a different angle but I have used a pre training questionnaire to determine preferred learning styles of individuals to customize training content to individual styles.
I do however agree with other posts in determining levels of knowledge, skills and behavior pre and post training.
What you include is dependant on what purpose or information you want/need to collect. The last question posed is most relevant.

Thanks. for the questionnaires. Its indeed is appropriate and individualtrainers need to tweak the Post questionnaire filling up time depending on their end date of training, in my opinion.... However thanks a lot, Vinod Vijaypur.
