The articles further explore how to conduct and apply logic models. You will find the article by Goldman and Schmaltz especially useful as it walks you through the creation of a logic model. Plank and Garrett’s article will provide valuable insight into the application of a logic model.

Tasks:

In a minimum of 250 words, respond to the following:

  • What value do you find in the development of the logic model as part of the program evaluation process after considering the development and application of the logic model?
  • What conditions within an organization or agency lead to the development of a strong logic model?
  • What conditions within an organization or agency make the development of a sound logic model challenging?
  • What steps can you take to address or overcome those challenges?
