Documenting programmatic results is essential for success of Extension professionals. A 2-year program conducted by University of Missouri Extension evaluated the short-term increase in knowledge of agricultural producers of grain crops. The program consisted of 1-day classroom events at 16 locations and focused on teaching integrated pest management (IPM) technology relevant to grain production. Pre- and post-test scores indicated that this group significantly heightened their short-term knowledge of the program's instructional content. Using this type of evaluation technique is valuable to those in Extension because it documents change, is simple to implement, and is relatively easy to interpret results.
