Testing and Assessments

All of Majorium’s learner evaluation services are designed to identify and address your employee knowledge gaps and can be incorporated into a comprehensive learning solution or used as stand-alone services. The learner evaluation services will improve the results that your company produces through its development programs as well as report them in a way that demonstrates the value of your training initiatives to senior decision makers.

Evaluation Consultation

Donald L. Kirkpatrick, Ph.D.

Donald L. Kirkpatrick, Ph.D. is available to consult with companies regarding both their training and evaluation needs. This provides access to his experience, expertise and perspectives regarding problems and issues that companies are encountering, as well as his personal insights on how to correct them.

Majorium’s Design Team

Evaluation consultation is available with other members of Majorium’s design team who will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of current customer programs and make recommendations to improve and align training with customer’s unique business strategies, goals and objectives.

Both evaluation consultation services are delivered through on-site customer visits. The number of visits will depend upon the depth and scope of the assignment.

The evaluation consultation services are applicable for companies that require assistance aligning business strategies, goals and outcomes to training and need to know how to measure, evaluate and report training results and outcomes in a way meaningful to senior management.

Skill and Competency Identification

Majorium’s design team will conduct a complete evaluation of roles, tasks and assignments to identify the skills and competencies required to be productive and efficient in individual jobs. This includes developing comprehensive job descriptions and aligning training to specific jobs.

Our design team will conduct a series of on-site meetings and focus groups as well as use surveys and other information gathering tools to identify the skills and competencies associated with specific jobs.

Companies use our identification services to detail the skills and competencies required of specific jobs in order to increase employee performance and productivity. The services can also be incorporated into job descriptions and performance evaluations.

Competency Assessment

Standardized

Majorium offers a series of competency assessment tests and has identified key competencies in multiple disciplines and created individual banks of assessment questions for each competency.

Companies can select up to 10 standardized competency test banks to create an assessment evaluation. Competency tests are available in leadership, management, sales, customer service, sales service, and sales management.

Randomized tests are delivered online and companies can determine the appropriate testing schedule for their employees. Once completed, companies are provided with scores in an excel database. The results can be evaluated and reported as an additional option.

The standardized assessment test is an ideal application for companies with limited budgets who desire to understand the knowledge gaps in key competencies.

Customized

When companies have identified specific skills and competencies Majorium can develop assessment tests aligned to those results. Tests will assess the skill and competency levels of individual employees and identify knowledge gaps. We will work with the customer to determine the breadth, scope and length of the test.

Once completed, Majorium can deliver a randomized test or provide it to the customer for their administration. If Majorium administers the test, the results will be reported as determined by the customer at the initiation of the project.

Customized skill and competency assessments are applicable when companies wish to align performance to training and have the need to identify individual skill and knowledge gaps. They can use this information to craft a learning and development program to improve performance by closing these gaps.

Testing

Pre-Training Testing

Pre-training testing can be used to benchmark individual knowledge levels, and when linked with post-training testing, identifies the effectiveness of the training program.

Randomize pre-training tests are administered online. Scores can be reported immediately or incorporated into an optional comprehensive training assessment.

Pre-training testing can be used to benchmark employee knowledge levels. Additionally, it allows individuals to “test out” of the course if a specific score is achieved. This eliminates the cost of redundant training.

Post-Training Testing

Post-training testing is used to assess the comprehension and retention of the subject matter taught in a specific training course.

Randomize post-training tests are administered online.. Majorium recommends testing within a 30-day window after training is completed instead of immediately at the completion of training. Scores can be reported immediately or incorporated into an optional comprehensive training assessment.

Kirkpatrick’s Inventories

Donald L. Kirkpatrick has created a series of inventories:

  • Leadership, Motivation
    and Decision Making
  • Management Inventory
    on Managing Change
  • Management Inventory
    on Modern Management
  • Management Inventory
    on Performance Appraisal and Coaching
  • Management Inventory
    on Time Management
  • Supervisory Inventory
    on Human Relations
  • Supervisory Inventory
    on Communications

Each is designed to assess individual competency levels within that area. They are randomized and administered online.

Kirkpatrick’s inventories are ideal applications for companies who wish to identify the abilities and capacity of their employees in specific areas and to determine their potential.

Reporting

Majorium provides companies with detailed evaluation and assessment reports of the various testing and assessment options. These reports include specific recommendations and training plans.

Majorium’s design team evaluates and assesses individual and group test scores, then prepares both individual and group score reports and makes specific recommendations to fill knowledge gaps and improve performance.

Detailed assessment and evaluation reports provide companies with the information that they need to make qualified decisions about the design and shape of future training programs. This will ensure that training initiatives meet the needs of the organization while stimulating progress and improving employee performance.
