Tips for Writing Great Statements
- Impacts statements are data driven
- Write professionally, avoid jargon or acronyms
- List clear and concise situation statement/objectives in the situation section.
- Be sure to give the context; what happened, who/numbers attending and incorporate into the Extension response section
- Use an evaluation tool that yields outcomes data (level 2 or higher) and to incorporate into the Impact section and anecdotal feedback for the Feedback section
Impact statements are best viewed in Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is free software that lets you view and print Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files. To access PDF files you need Adobe Reader installed. If you do not have Adobe Reader on your computer, you can download it below.
