Interview with Ken Phillips at the Association for Talent Development International Conference and Exposition from May 20th, 2019. The interview can be downloaded HERE.
Ken was gracious enough to spend a little time talking about evaluations, the PLA Method, learning analytics, predictive measurement, what most people get wrong with evaluations and his upcoming book Going from Training to Application Using Predictive Learning Analytics on evaluation backed by analytical data via a predictive model.
His website, Predictive Learning Analytics (PLA) lays out the methodology:
The mission of PLA is to provide L&D professionals with a systematic, credible and repeatable process for maximizing the value of learning and development investments by measuring, monitoring and managing the amount of scrap learning associated with those investments.

Side Note: I sometimes have problems remembering people’s names. Faces I know names, not so much. Names can take a while to settle in the database. This interview was so wonderful, I would talk about it and try to remember the name of the interview subject. I merely said “the evaluation guru” and two different people said, oh, you mean Ken Phillips.

Holy moly! His information on creating assessments is incredibly timely for me and enlightening. I’m halfway through the interview and I look forward to finishing it (soon). Thanks, Maurice, for sharing this out!
The second half will blow your mind. Happy Listening.
