The 12 step process for developing After Action Reports and
Improvement Plans (AAR/IP) for exercises and real world incidents and events
ensures that staff develop consistent, Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation
Program (HSEEP) compliant After Action Reports and Improvement Plans, and that
AAR/IPs provide analysis and corrective actions that enhance future exercises
and real world incident and event responses.
At the conclusion of an exercise or real world incident or event, the lead exercise planner or designated staff will develop an HSEEP-compliant AAR/IP and submit it within 60 days of the conclusion of the exercise or incident/event. Training, Exercise and Evaluation Section staff are available to assist in this process as needed.
Courses and training events need to include evaluation to
determine their effectiveness. This should be done in the manner most appropriate
for the course or training event and would include, at a minimum, evaluation of
the participants' understanding of the content and perception of the
effectiveness of the course or training event.
In order to better document the scope and effectiveness of Preparedness trainings approved through the Tier Review Process, a Training Summary Report Template is provided. In this report, course managers provide participant information and feedback, learning objectives and capabilities, as well as identified areas of excellence and improvement. This report is submitted to PHMP_TrainEx@doh.state.fl.us 60 days after the end of the training, or at least annually, by June 30th.
Evaluation of participant learning may be conducted through a test that addresses the material covered in the course and assesses the participant's understanding of the content.
Evaluation may also be conducted by the participant's demonstration of tasks or skills related to the course that are observed and rated by the instructor.
The second form of evaluation is conducted through a participant satisfaction survey. This provides the participant an opportunity to share feedback with the people in charge of the course or event. The participant survey should include the following information:
Each learning objective is listed for the participant to rate how well each was achieved through the training and/or his/her understanding of it.
The following Items for the participant to rate:
Increased knowledge or skill
Usefulness for the participant's job/response role
Effectiveness of the trainer or facilitator
Effectiveness of the materials
Effectiveness of format or delivery method
Participant's overall rating and additional comments
