Psycho What? Defensible, Measurable, Assessable Training. Is Yours? Wendy K. Lau, M.S., Psychometrician, PG&E
Psycho What? • For the namesake… • Really, what does a Psychometrician do? • What do I do at PG&E? A one-sentence answer… A multi-sentence answer… • Review • Analyze • Create
Why is it so important to evaluate training? • Stakeholders’/clients • Curriculum developers • Delivery • Operations • Training participants • Independent contractors who perform all tasks (Curriculum Development, Delivery and Operations)
Defensibility Why do we need to worry about defensibility? Examples from PG&E for a reality check…. Can you think of industries that require training defensibility? Do we have to worry about defensibility for all training? What do you think?
What makes training defensible? • Consistent process • Identify appropriate targeted audience • Incorporate current adult learning theories throughout • Guidance documents • Direct alignment between training objectives and testing • Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) involvement • Checkpoints to ensure defensibility…That’s where I come in! • Task Analysis → Assessment & Remediation Strategy→ L2→Cutscore→Result Analysis Documentation, documentation, documentation!
