Creating Logic Models, Goals, and Indicators

May 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

A logic model is a visual representation of how a results-based program is designed to work. Many evaluation experts agree that the use of the logic model is an effective way to ensure program success, as it helps organize and systematize program planning, evaluation, and improvement. A logic model outlines the resources needed to run a program, the activities and products being delivered, and the changes in participants’ lives that are expected to occur as a result of participating in the program. A logic model clearly outlines program goals—general statements about what an organization intends to accomplish, as related to program activities and participant outcomes—and their corresponding indicators, which are the specific ways to measure progress toward program goals. In this seminar, we will share information that will help you learn how to create and update your own logic model, and identify appropriate goals and indicators for your program.
