Logic Model Defined. 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-term and long-term) with program activities/processes and the theoretical assumptions/prin

1. Logic Models Theories of Change Outcome Line Analysis Peter Maier Center for Urban Initiatives and Research University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

2. Logic Model Defined

3. Why Logic Models Many requests for proposals now require them A method for sound program planning Provides the basis for program evaluation

4. The Utility of Logic Models in Program Evaluation If the sequence of activities is not implemented as planned, implementation failure is indicated and outcome evaluation is moot. If the sequence of activities is implemented as planned and the outcomes of interest are not achieved, a failure of program theory is indicated. If the sequence of activities is implemented as planned and the outcomes of interest are achieved, the logic model provides a strong basis for program replication.

32. The Utility of Logic Models in Program Evaluation If the sequence of activities is not implemented as planned, implementation failure is indicated and outcome evaluation is moot. If the sequence of activities is implemented as planned and the outcomes of interest are not achieved, a failure of program theory is indicated. If the sequence of activities is implemented as planned and the outcomes of interest are achieved, the logic model provides a strong basis for program implementation.
