#36. Two Mistakes to Avoid When Answering the 4 Impact Questions

Updated: Sep 7, 2018

This month, we're continuing our series of tips on the dreaded impact questions. For a refresher, see July's Carnegie Hacks.

When answering the 4 impact questions, NEVER, EVER, EVER mention:

1. Growing participation rates

(Unless you want to look like you don't understand assessment. Or impacts. Or the classification.)

2. Increased participant satisfaction or enthusiasm

(This includes smiling faces.)

Okay, with that out of the way, we can focus the rest of this month on what you should include in those 4 responses.

In the meantime, for a refresher on Carnegie's definitions of outcomes and impacts, see July's Carnegie Hacks.
