A systematic configuration of stakeholders’prescriptive assumptions (what actions must be taken) and descriptive assumptions (what causal processes are expected to happen) underlying programs, whether explicit or implicit assumptions.

Definition of a Logic Model
The program logic model is defined as a picture of how your organization does its work – the theory and assumptions underlying the program. A program logic model links outcomes (both short- and long-term) with program activities/processes and the theoretical assumptions/principles of the program.
- The W.K.Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide
Logic models provide a “Road Map” of a program.

Resources and Inputs
Assumptions: The underlying assumptions that influence the program’s design, implementation or goals
External Factors/Context: Description of environment in which program takes place
CA Success Network (CA SN) Logic Model
California community colleges must expand their capacity to improve student outcomes in basic skills instruction, English as a Second Language, and related support services. Colleges report that 70-90% of entering students place into one or more basic skills course areas: reading, writing, and/or mathematics. The statewide course completion rate in basic skills is 60.5%, and only 50% of those students persist to and complete the next level course. Historically underrepresented students are over-represented in basic skills courses, and their success rates are frequently lower than the rates for other student groups. Community colleges' efforts to improve outcomes in basic skills cannot be separated from their responsibility to produce equitable graduation, certificate, and transfer rates for historically underrepresented and underprepared students.

Sample Logic Model Framework

So far, we have thought through several organizing frameworks to help you plan and/or articulate the learning that needs to happen on your campus to enact your theory of change.
