Logic Model Template for ATE Projects & CentersLoriA. Wingate | March2016
A logic model is a visual depiction of what a project does and what changes it is expected to bring about. Developing a logic model is an important first step for project design and evaluation planning. This document is intended to provide general guidance to ATE program proposers and grantees for developing their own project logic models.All parts of this document are editable.Populate the boxes in each column (adding and deleting boxes as necessary) with succinct statements that relate to the question prompts. To add text to a box, select the box and begin typing. Either delete the extra content (title, instructions, examples, etc.) from this document or copy-and-paste the logic model elements into a new document for your use. To learn more about logic models, see theUniversity of Wisconsin-Extension’s Logic Model Resources atwww.uwex.edu/ces/pdande/evaluation/evallogicmodel.html.

What new and existing resources will be used to support the project?
What are the main things the project will do?
What productswill be created? (typically, things that can be directly observed and that will continue to exist after the project ends)
What will occur as a direct result of the activities and outputs? (typically, changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes)
What results should follow from the initial outcomes? (typically, changes in behavior, policies, practice)
What results should follow from the initial outcomes? (typically, changes in broader conditions)

Below are examples thetypesof information that might appear under each header of the logic model. When developing a project logic model, be as specific as possible in articulating the components of the model. For example, a project-specific short-term outcome might be phrased as “learners will be able to install, maintain, and troubleshoot high-vacuum systems.”
