Conference PDW #4: Logic Models for Program Evaluation and Planning

The logic model, as a map of what a program is and intends to do, is a useful tool for clarifying objectives, improving the relationship between activities and those objectives, and developing and integrating evaluation plans and strategic plans. First, we will recapture the utility of program logic modeling as a simple discipline, using cases in public health and human services to explore the steps for constructing, refining and validating models. Then, we'll examine how to improve logic models using some fundamental principles of "program theory", demonstrate how to use logic models effectively to help frame questions in program evaluation, and show some ways logic models can also inform strategic planning

Eval12 Session 339: Reconstruction of Program Logic Models as an Essential Component of Program Evaluation

In the real world logic of programs under evaluation is not always clear and consistent. According to my experience, three most common flaws in program logic are: (1) use of indicators instead of goals and objectives (the goals are “too SMART”), (2) lack of program/project goals, and (3) lack of logical harmonization between programs and projects. Reconstruction of program logic is development of a comprehensive chain of reasoning that links investments into a program with the program results by piecing together bits of evidence collected in the course of program evaluation. In this presentation I will provide examples of typical flaws in program logic, suggest how to fix them in the course of evaluation, and argue that reconstruction of program logic should be an essential part of most evaluations and one of evaluators’ competencies

Grappling With the Unexpected From Firefighting to Systematic Action - Slides from SI10

His theoretical interests include unexpected behavior in programs and their evaluations, logic models, continuous process improvement methodologies in evaluation, complex systems, and the nature of practical action. Lately he has been playing with two pet curiosities, the relationship between agent-based modeling and evaluation, and the relationship between the visual forms of logic models and unexpected program behavior

Eval11 Session 569: Through Their Eyes: An Evaluation of a School Based Mental Health Program

Additionally, the evaluation allowed for the construction of a logic model that represented the stakeholder's perceptions of how the program operated to address the needs of stakeholders, and matched with a humanistic theory of the program

Introduction to Evaluation Slides from the Pre Institute Workshop at SI10

The course will touch on all six steps, but particular emphasis will be put on the early steps, including identification and engagement of stakeholders, creation of logic models, and selecting/focusing evaluation questions
