This evaluation studied the evidence of research-based learning theories and practices in the 70:20:10 framework literature. Carefully noting that the 70:20:10 framework is a workplace performance model (that is, a model that underscores doing work tasks versus only knowing about them), this investigation finds the majority of the framework literature was well grounded in the basic elements of human learning outlined in the literature review. There was sound evidence of research-based learning theories and practices woven throughout the framework literature. Additionally, the 70:20:10 framework literature aligns with how workplace learning is developing in the twenty-first century.
