Program logic models: expanding their role and structure for program planning and evaluation

Abstract: Schematic representations of a program sometimes referred to as program logic models, have been used for a number of years as a means of clarifying the purposes of a program and the causal assumptions on which it is based. This paper discusses some of the benefits of expanding the structure of these logic models by clearly separating implementation and outcome objectives within the objectives hierarchy of the program. Benefits of constructing these logic models for program planning and other purposes are also discussed.
