Abstract

Training is an important Human Resource Management (HRM) function.  Training  not only provides employees with knowledge and skills to more effectively perform  their  jobs,  it can directly contribute to the bottom line.  Training programs must deliver important skills and the assessment of their effectiveness is essential.  In this experiential exercise, students are trained, act as trainers of other students, and participate in the assessment of training effectiveness. The exercise provides feedback to student trainers on communication skills.  It also allows students to see different types of information collected from a variety of training assessments.  Analyses of class-generated data are also provided.
