A quick end of the day evaluation for a longer program.
This is a quick and simple exercise at the end of the day to evaluate it. It is not intended as a complete evaluation but as a simple one. It is normally used when time is tight and a longer evaluation of the whole program will take place later.
Time needed: Less than one minute per person
Pre-Work Required: none
Ask for each person to say at least one thing about their experience of today. It can be positive or negative points, what they learned, what they have been thinking about. It is not necessary to go around in order, but each person needs to make one comment. (If you are very pressed for time, ask each person to give only one word that describes their assessment of the day.)
Follow-Up Required: A longer and more systematic evaluation should be done at the end of the program.
Usual or Expected Outcomes: a simple evaluation of the program.
Potential pitfalls: overly simplistic understanding of the state of the group.
History of Development: This specific version was developed a part of a facilitators manual in Shell International Exploration and Production's Drilling the Limit team.
