Logic Models as a Tool to Plan and Manage Assessment

The logic model is a tool to assist faculty and program heads map their planning and assessment activities. It is a carefully laid out one-page document showing the whole as well as the parts developed in a logical sequence. The format encourages planners to focus on overall goal achievement as they carry out activities. This presentation provides a template of a logic model that can be adapted and used by a range of programs. Each component of the logic model matrix (inputs, activities, outputs, intermediate outcomes, long term outcomes, assessment methods, results, and use of results) is defined and described. A set of seven sample logic models from the University Health Services programs is presented.
