The purpose of this literature review is to examine the present methods of evaluating technology based instruction. Effective and efficient evaluation methods are imperative to the instructor who uses technology as a means to deliver instruction. It is important that the instructor is able to measure if the training objectives were achieved. A review of literature yields the historical contribution of instructional technology as well as evaluation to the present training trends. There are many accepted and widely used methods for evaluating training. Five of these instructional evaluation models are uncovered and discussed. This study revealed no specifically designed model for evaluating technology based instruction or no difference in the evaluation methods employed by technology based instruction and traditional classroom based instruction.
