Abstract

Information on evaluating training effectiveness via a general instrument is limited despite its obvious need in human resource development (HRD) especially in the Malaysian context. To this end, the proposed General Training Effectiveness Scale (GTES) offers a useful measurement for HRD practitioners to evaluate the self-report of workplace learning at minimal cost, time, and energy. The GTES was developed using theories in HRD, and tested in four studies including jury validation, pilot study, survey study1, and extension study with the Malaysian sample. The first version of GTES comprises of 30 items; however, only 10 items left in the final version. The proposed GTES constitutes a general instrument to measure training effectiveness at various levels including learning performance, individual performance, and organizational performance using a self-report that can be used by researchers, practitioners, and public.
