Logic Models as a Platform for Program Evaluation Planning, Implementation, and Use of Findings Slides from SI10 

06-29-2010 13:30

Session Description: Practitioners use logic models to describe important components of a program; make visible a theory of change; and link activities to intended outcomes. For the purposes of evaluation practice, a well-constructed logic model provides a program-specific foundation for identifying evaluation questions; prioritizing data needs; and translating findings into recommendations for ongoing program improvement. Aimed directly at improving the utility of logic models and quality of evaluation practice in your setting, the workshop addresses two questions:

  1. What are the hallmarks of a well-constructed, scientifically-sound and useful logic model?
  2. How do we maximize the use of logic models for program evaluation planning, implementation and use of findings?
Workshop Objectives:
  • Demystify and define the logic model as a starting point for everyday evaluation practice
  • Identify the hallmarks of a well-constructed, scientifically-sound logic model
  • Clarify the relevance of process and outcome evaluation to preparing and using program logic models
  • Demonstrate the use of logic models to identify and prioritize evaluation questions and data needs
  • Examine the use of logic models to identify opportunities/options for demonstrating accountability for scarce resources
  • Demonstrate use of a logic model to guide preparation of findings/recommendations aimed at ongoing program improvement
  • Pinpoint additional resources for continued study/application
