The ADDIE Model of Learning - Evaluation

Evaluation is the step that should be done at the end of each phase.  If you have read Dr. Stephen Covey's book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", then you know the importance of "Begin with the End in Mind".

Essentially, before you start analyzing, designing, developing and implementing your tutoring or lesson plan, you need to know what you want to achieve in the overall learning experience and for each phase.  That means evaluation should happen continuously.

Let's look at the "Evaluation" phase in more details:

Step 5 Evaluation

Review and revision, including

  • review and evaluation of each ADDIE phase to ensure it is accomplishing what it needs to
  • evaluation of the instructional effectiveness of the training through assessments, observation of performance on the job, and measurement of organizational impact
  • revision of the training system

So how does it apply to tutoring?

I would suggest when you are done with each phase of the "ADDIE" model, ask yourself if what you have done (ADDIE) is supporting the learning objectives and the overall learning experience. If not, it's a good time to pause, step back, and review each phase carefully.

Hope the posts from this week is helpful!  If you have any questions about the ADDIE model of learning or overall designing learning for tutoring or teaching, feel free to contact me at or post a comment below.
