For this assignment, you will create a logic model for a health-related program. You may create a fictitious program “from scratch” for your model or you can base it on a pre-existing program. If you select a pre-existing program, you are encouraged to consider choosing a program or initiative that you are familiar with or involved in (e.g. a program at your workplace, a community volunteer organization initiative, a program at your child’s school, etc.) Your logic model must be unique, created by you specifically for this assignment, and may not be based on an already-existing logic model for a program. Note that there is no one “correct” format for a logic model. The readings provide various templates and examples of what a logic model can look like. Consider using the exercises in the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide (2006) to inform your own process. Your logic model must contain at least the three basic components of logic models (inputs, outputs, and outcomes; as described in Figure 12.1 in the textbook), but should also incorporate as many additional components as necessary to fully describe the logic of your program. You may choose to do this assignment as a written paper or as a screencast presentation.
In a three to four double spaced (one page/slide of which must be the actual logic model diagram):
•Describe the health-related program for which you are creating the logic model
•Create a logic model for your selected health-related program
•Specify which program components are included in each section of the model
•Outline the forward logic (moving forward from the activities) and reverse logic (moving backwards from the effects) of your model (see CHD, 2014 from our readings for more details on this)
•Justify the logic and order of each component included in the model
