Reaction, Evaluation of

See Level 1 Evaluation – Reaction.


A presentation method in which learners cover teaching points by reading about them rather than by having the instructor/facilitator or a narrated, self-directed e-learning program present them.

Recall/Recognition Questions

Require learners to remember information that was presented previously. They involve the lower cognitive levels in Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, i.e., Remember and Understand.


One of FKA’s performance parameters. It identifies any documentation used in performing an ability such as SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) or regulations. Job Aids are listed as a separate parameters.


See Test Reliability.

Remote Delivery

One part of the local vs. remote consideration for selecting an instructional strategy. It answers: “Are learners in one location or spread out geographically?” If learners are spread across a wide area, even across the globe, some form of e-learning might be the most expedient and cost effective solution.


The behavior of a learner when asked a question or when requested to perform some activity.


In FKA’s Instructional Systems Design Methodology, a responsibility is a job function or category of job requirements, such as, supervision or reporting. Each responsibility is broken down into abilities in the Model of Performance (MoP). A responsibility forms the basis of a course during the learning program.

Results, Evaluation of

See Level 4 Evaluation – Results.


The act of storing and making information available for retrieval from long-term memory. Factors that impact learner retention are: their level of interest, repetition of information, association of new information to existing information, use of multiple channels, and allowing time for learners to reflect and process this new information.


Process in which information in your long-term memory is recalled. The act of retrieving information strengthens the memory traces making it easier to retrieve the next time.

Return on Investment

See ROI.

Rhetorical Question

A question that requires no answer from the listener because, either the answer is obvious or the asker plans to answer it right away.


The total benefit of an intervention divided by the cost. An ROI of greater than 1 indicates more benefit than cost.

Role Playing

An application method in which learners are assigned roles and asked to act out a real life situation using guidelines provided by the instructor/facilitator. It can be relatively structured or spontaneous. Two examples of role playing are: multiple role playing and role rotation.

Role Rotation

Players in a role play switch allowing different people to each have a turn playing the various roles.


Stands for: RDF (Reserve Description Framework) Site Summary, or Rich Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a protocol which provides an open method of publishing frequently updated Internet content.

A scoring guide used in subjective assessments. It implies that a rule defining the criteria of an assessment system is followed during the assessment. A scoring rubric makes explicit expected qualities of performance on a rating scale.
