Purpose of the feedback study
The study of the feedback from the participants in the evaluation workshop is a practice that aims to establish their satisfaction with the benefits, organization and content of the event process. The results of the feedback are indicative of the effectiveness of the interactions and the overall management of the project and provide an opportunity to identify areas for piloting activities.
The questionnaire includes 15 items, divided into 5 parts; focusing on the preparation of the event, timing, training venue and technical equipment, structure -content and delivery of the training, follow up and other factors. A five-point rating scale was used: 1 – poor, 2 – fair, 3 – good, 4 – very good, 5 – excellent.
The questionnaire also contains 4 sections for additional comments on the degree of achievement of the training objectives, difficulties and/or insufficient clarity of the training activities for piloting.
