Logic Models

Logic model picture (002).jpgWhere are you going? • How will you get there? • How will you know when you have arrived?


A logic model is like a road map that shows relationships among the Inputs [resources], activities, outputs, outcomes/impacts for your program. It displays the relationship between a program's activities and its intended effects. If I do this activity, then I expect this outcome. This process will also help you identify your evaluation questions, measures/data sources and determine if your program was implemented with fidelity [as intended].


Inputs: actual or anticipated resources needed to implement activities (e.g., funds, staff, facilities, support, etc.).

Activities: what the program does with the resources, to achieve the program's goals (e.g. interventions​ and training provided).

Outputs: Tangible products, capacities, or deliverables that result from the activities (e.g., resources developed, training materials)

Outcomes: both short-term and long-term changes that occur because of the program activities.  Short-term outcome examples: increased knowledge or confidence after a training, improved attendance or engagement. Long-term outcome/impact examples: improved graduation rates, equity in access to STEM classes, reduced rates of  addiction to alcohol, tobacco or drugs, decrease in hospitalization due to mental health crises.
