—Ann G. Cobb, managing partner, North Carolina Office of State Personnel, HRD Group
"Jane Bozarth asked trainers and instructional designers to share the tools of their trade. The result is a wonderfully useful nuts-and-bolts compendium of practitioner-developed tools, worksheets, templates, and job aids. I really like the editable versions included on the CD—readers can customize tools to their own needs, making the book doubly valuable."
—Karl M. Kapp, Ed.D., professor of instructional technology, Bloomsburg University, and author, Gadgets, Games, and Gizmos for Learning
"From Analysis to Evaluation: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Trainers picks up where primers on instructional design leave off. If those other books tell you instructional design ought to happen, this terrific book tells you how it really does happen. Jane Bozarth has compiled tips, techniques, and worksheets from a large variety of trainers to help with just about every aspect of making a training program happen. The resources rooted in the real world, practical, witty, and always insightful and appreciated. Will be a great tool to share with my instructional design students. But to be truthful, I'm using them myself first. A must-have for any serious training professional."
—Saul Carliner, associate professor, Graduate Program in Educational Technology, Concordia University, Montreal
