Workshop

Logic Models: The Swiss Army Knife of Project Planning and Evaluation
Kelly RobertsonLyssa Wilson
July 27, 2016 | 3:45-4:30 p.m.

A logic model is a graphic depiction of how a project translates its resources and activities into outcomes. Logic models are useful tools for succinctly communicating a project’s goals and activities, but they have many other applications. They provide a foundation for a project evaluation plan (and subsequent reporting) and can be used to organize the content of a grant proposal.  In this session, participants will learn the basics of how to create a logic model and we will demonstrate its use for planning a project evaluation and organizing a grant proposal.  Participants will receive the Evaluation Planning Checklist for ATE Proposals and ATE Project Logic Model Template.

Participants will receive the Evaluation Planning Checklist for ATE Proposals and ATE Project Logic Model Template.
