Live cases and internships appear to have high trainer approval ratings, based on a survey of corporate trainers. About 200 corporate trainers rated 20 training methods, using seven measures of training effectiveness.

Training methods with less student/teacher interaction, such as television lectures, were rated low with such measures.
