Family Impact Analysis Evaluation Rubric

general article writing



One of the most important skills for students to acquire during this course is the ability to apply

the Family Impact Lens to existing and proposed policies. One of the ways to carry out this task

is to conduct a formal Family Impact Analysis. For this assignment, students will conduct a

family impact analysis of a specific existing or currently proposed policy. You may choose any

policy; this includes ones we did not cover in class. However, it must be a different policy from

the one you did your presentation and the other two papers on.

Students are strongly encouraged to use the Family Impact Checklist to guide their writing, and

view example analyses on the Family Institute Website (both links are provided at the bottom).

Papers should include an APA format title page, APA headers, APA-style citations, and an APA

format reference page. The body of the paper may be no more than four pages long, and should

be single-spaced with 12-point Times New Roman font and 1-inch margins. Students do not

need to prepare an abstract for this assignment.

There are four parts to this assignment:

1. Students will identify and briefly summarize a current or proposed policy, and identify

what families might be affected by the policy. Students should be attentive to both direct

and indirect effects.

2. Students will use the family impact principles to determine how families are or can be

supported by this policy. Be sure to support claims with clear arguments and specific


3. Using the family impact principles, students will identify how families are or might be

undermined by this policy. Be sure to support claims with clear arguments and specific


4. Students will address whether there are beneficial effects that might have been

overlooked without family impact analysis, or if there are harmful effects that a family

impact analysis might help avoid.
