3.3. Developing Participant Course Evaluations

Finally, you have completed your workshop, tested your participants, and now its time to receive their feedback and evaluation. This information is important for you. It provides the specifics you need to improve your workshop or course the next time you present it. Many CEU approval programs require course participant evaluation data as part of their renewal of CEU approval.

There are many formal ways of developing program or participant evaluation forms. They require knowledge of statistical analysis that is beyond the scope of this program – another entire course. For now, I’m going to share two types of participant evaluation forms as models for your own form development.

The first is a generic form – one that can be used for any workshop.
