C. EVALUATE THE PROGRESS OF A TRAINING PROJECT

Assessing the progress of trainees is one of the most important responsibilities of a trainer. Evaluation activities should be integrated into the overall training plan to determine how effectively the training efforts are progressing.

Among the most common types of evaluations are those that measure progress during the course of training. Measures can be taken at different stages on a daily or weekly basis. When you evaluate as you go along it avoids the undue stress on students of a single final examination; it gives trainees more incentive to learn throughout the course; and you can get useful information to identify problems as they arise. You can then give attention to those problems and change the course so that it more effectively meets the needs of the trainees.

Evaluating the performance of students and trainers will also enable you to learn how effective you perform as a teacher and will help ensure that students will be able to perform health tasks competently when they return to work in the community.
