Toolkit - satisfaction questions

Participant reaction does not give the evaluator any information about impact on teaching practice. Instead it provides an overview of the participant’s satisfaction with teacher facilitation, content, delivery, administration, facilities and logistics of the CPD activity. Establishing reaction is important because it helps to inform future development of the activity.
