On one hand, we say we honor evaluation, that we are eager for evidence and data. On the other hand, most reported practice is far from enthusiastic about metrics.  Today’s economic climate has increased accountability in organizations and required training and performance professionals to look in a data-driven way at their influence. At the same time, technology-delivered training, learning management systems and a host of tools has increased possibilities for data collection.  Are organizations using these tools?  And if so, to what ends?

This session will tour evaluation promises, practices and barriers and provide an opportunity for participants to examine their efforts in light of the possibilities. How do you compare to the reported efforts of our respondents? How can we all do better?
