FINAL EXAM STUDY GUIDE FMSC 383 FINAL EXAM STUDY GUIDE FMSC 383 LOGIC MODELS LOGIC MODELS 1. 1. What are the major parts of the logic model? What are the major parts of the logic model?         A depiction of a program showing what the program will do and what it is to accomplish. (AKA: Theory of change, Program action, Model of change, Conceptual map, Outcome map, Program logic) Simplest form: Inputs : resources you put into the program Outputs: activities & participation. Outcomes: results (headache example-get pills, take, better) Often not included in the graphical LM display but important to articulate are o Assumptions / External factors, for example, do financial institutions exist; are they accessible / (barriers and facilitators) / Evaluation runs over the course of the program and is part of the program design. / Looks linear but is not… If-Then relationships o Underlying a logic model is a series of ‘if-then’ relationships that express the program’s theory of change INPUTS include such resources as staff/volunteers, time, money, technology, research base, partnerships, equipment, materials, OUTPUTS are the activities that are undertaken to reach targeted participants/populations. Thus, outputs include Activities and Participation. Some people refer to “participation” as “reach” – who the program is to reach; o Activities (Examples) *Create a community-wide coalition, Train staff and volunteers, Develop a communication strategy, Implement an action plan o Participation (who the program is to reach:- individuals, families, groups, businesses, organization, communities). Examples might include: All low income families living in the city of Grant, Businesses with fewer than 50 employees, Community groups in Palmetto neighborhood, Middle school youth identified as low achievers, All dairy producers in Milk County, Employees of Able City Government o Be as specific as possible with “who” is targeted . Note SATISFACTION: Satisfaction is not an outcome because being “satisfied” with something doesn’t mean that someone has changed or improved. Being satisfied is often a precursor to learning, but does not guarantee learning. Thus, in the UWEX logic model, satisfaction is considered an Output, not an Outcome . 2. What are the three types of outcomes and how do they differ from each other? OUTCOMES In order to facilitate/achieve outcomes, that extends along a continuum – or chain of outcomes from short to long-term or impact. For example, changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes and intent: o Change in knowledge might be increased understanding of the purpose of a budget, or loan terms

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
