National Institute of Corrections Training Evaluation Project: 2008 Evaluation Supplement: Learning, Application, and Action Plan Progress

Results from the Training Evaluation Project assessing the training offered by the National Institute of Corrections are presented. This bulletin’s primary purpose is to update CwRC-NIC Bulletin 4 (NICIC no. 024801) results about four recent training programs not included in the pilot project findings. The programs are Inmate Behavior Management, Administering a Small Jail, Conducting Prison Security Audits, and How to Run a Direct Supervision Housing Unit—Training for Trainers. Participants reported high to very high rates of training-related learning at the end of the course; 50% over-estimated the potential application of training in their jobs; and 75% lacked estimated progress on action plans.
