What general resources are available on logic modeling?

RUSH staff has identified for you their recommended "must reads" on logic modeling based on NIDRR grantees' frequency of requests for a copy of the article and the perceived usefulness of the article. These "must reads" are identified in the SEDL archives at the end of the list below with a symbol of a star green star bullet.

Everything you Wanted to Know About Logic Models But Were Afraid to Ask

This paper was funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) under a contract to Insites, a Colorado-based non-profit 501(c)3 orgainization. It addresses situations where a private foundation designs an initiative and award grants to a number of sites to participate inthe initiative in their local setting. The basic ideas are applicable to other situations. (1999)

Planning for Outcome Evaluations

Planning for Outcome Evaluations is a resource provided by the Child Welfare Information Gateway. This web page provides selected resources on logic model development and a searchable Information Gateway Library. One example of a useful search provided through the library is Evaluation How-to's by Program Type.

Logic Models in Out-of-School Time Programs: What are They and Why are They Important? (Hamilton & Bronte-Tinkew, 2007).

This research brief from the national research organization Child Trends describes the key components of a logic model, identifies why logic models are useful, and discusses different types of logic models, the formats that they take, and the resources available to programs for creating them.
