3.2 Logic Model

Logic models are used in performance measurement and evaluation to illustrate the key activities and results of programs. They illustrate the programs for a variety of purposes, including the identification of the key outcomes to eventually assess the effectiveness of programs. Logic models typically include the following components:

  • Activities: these include the key actions that lead directly to the expected outputs.
  • Outputs: these include tangible products and services directly produced as a result of the activities. They are concrete in nature and are means to achieve the expected results.
  • Immediate, intermediate and ultimate results: These components include the key expected results, outcomes and impacts of the programs. It is assumed that they result from the outputs, as well as other external factors not identified in the logic model.
