This chapter focuses on the last phase of the systematic instructional design approach, ADDIE. This evaluation phase is illustrated through means of a case study, namely the evaluation of a computer-based training program, KABISA. The leading evaluation questions were whether students followed a criterion path and whether students used the embedded help functions. Ninety-seven physicians following post-graduate training in tropical medicine participated in this evaluation. Log files were kept of the students and 21 students participated in thinking-aloud sessions. Results indicate that students do not follow the criterion path and that only poor use is made of help functions. This evaluation study shows that a systematic approach to instructional design remains highly valuable.
