dc.description.abstractThis study was designed to assess the effects of business training evaluations on the competencies of business trainees in Marsabit Central and South Districts of Marsabit County, Kenya.The researcher used descriptive survey research design alongside simple random,proportionate and census sampling techniques. The study had 345 business trainees and 81trainers respondents. The study used structured survey questionnaires to elicit responses from sampled respondents coupled with secondary data. A regression model was developed and used to compute the effects of training evaluation techniques on the competencies of the business trainees in the study areas. The study revealed that business trainers in the study areas moderately evaluated the reaction and the skills and knowledge levels of their trainees. However, they least evaluated behavioural and impact factors of the business training on the trainees. The business trainers also use mainly experimentation and observation evaluation techniques as opposed to popularly used four-factor and three-factor comparison methods. It was further established that at 95% level of confidence all the training evaluation techniques used by the business trainers in the study areas did not have significant effects on the competencies of the business trainees. Thus, other training evaluation techniques could be explored for use in the study areas. In addition, further research can be carried out to establish reasons why the training evaluation techniques did not have significant effects on the competencies of the business trainees in the study areas.en_US
