This document from REL Northeast provides a guide for facilitators to build the capacity of audiences on logic model purpose, elements, and steps to develop for the purpose of program evaluation. The first section of this document outlines a proposed two-hour session which uses a case study approach to introduce logic model basics, including its key elements. The second part of the guide again uses case studies but this time to demonstrate how logic models can be used for the purpose of evaluation, including how to generate indicators and build an evaluation design. This resource is appropriate for audiences at the state and local level. A logic model is one way to demonstrate a rationale, the fourth level of evidence in the evidence-based intervention requirement of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Please also see the accompanying slide deck.
