Research Benchmarking is the process by which your learning interventions are benchmarked against research-based best practices.
While random-assignment between-group research is likely to be too expensive and time-consuming for most of us, and benchmarking our work against other industry players is likely to push us toward mediocrity, Research Benchmarking offers a potent alternative.
Learning programs are examined to determine how well they (a) create understanding, (b) support long-term remembering (minimize forgetting), and (c) motivate on-the-job performance. They will be research-benchmarked against the 12 most decisive factors in learning design.
