Over 150 scientific studies—taken together—show that our learner-feedback questions (our smile sheets) are virtually uncorrelated with learning results. They tell us very little about learning effectiveness! So what are we to do? Throw out our smile sheets? No! We can make them more effective! In this online discussion, noted research-to-practice expert, Dr. Will Thalheimer will share what he’s learned about creating learning evaluations that work, based on his award-winning book, Performance-Focused Smile Sheets: A Radical Rethinking of a Dangerous Art Form. This is a not-to-miss topic. After half a century of poorly-designed learner feedback forms, there is finally a method that provides us the data we need to make good decisions.
