Evaluation of the Training the Trainers Programme. What Did Trainers Know? What Did They Learn?
From 1995 to 2003 over 700 educators from the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe participated in a programme that trained them to provide services similar to those offered by centres for economic education affiliated with universities and colleges in the United States. This paper summarises pretest and post-test data to evaluate the educators' knowledge of fundamental microeconomics and macroeconomics. These results are compared to data for over 2,700 US college students who participated in the norming of the same test items used to evaluate the training programme.
