Developing Useful Logic Models

This presentation is geared toward helping practitioners develop useful logic models. The slides address the hallmarks of well-constructed, useful logic models and how to use logic model for program evaluation planning, implementation, and using the findings. The slides do a nice job of breaking down and explaining the different components and terminology associated with a logic model. Additional resources and sites are also included. States can use this presentation as an introduction to logic models and as guidance for key components to create a meaningful logic model for their SSIP evaluation.
