Abstract

The present paper is intended to foster a theoretical framework for a Web-based Educational Technology graduate program's evaluation in an U.S. southern state university. Corresponding to two key program goals and state-mandated regulations, an expanded Kirkpatrick's four-level model is proposed and illustrated in a matrix, including four distinct, but compatible, categories of data: learners' reaction, learning outcomes, behavior change, and business results, and one additional dimension of data sets: learner profiling, i.e., age, gender, work status, and learning styles. It features a flattened evaluation model structure, participants' reaction on a spectrum, a learning assessment tool, a performance appraisal model, and partnership within an eco-system, and use of learner profiling in describing and predicting a successful learning experience and a satisfactory performance across the curriculum. The rationale and justifications of the project are also addressed.
