Definitions and Examples

Activity: Logic Model Components — Examples

Directions
Check your logic model knowledge by rearranging the following logic model examples. To rearrange the examples, drag and drop each item inside the correct logic model component box. Correct answers will lock in place and turn green. Incorrect answers will bounce back.

Need a hint? You can review the definitions by rolling your curser over the terms in each component box.

Inputs [Example: Funds, staff, policies, collaborations.]

[Rollover definition: Resources available to operate a program.]

Strategies/Activities [Example: Strategy: Develop model CSHP and PANT policies for schools and school districts.]

[Rollover definition: Strategy: The means or broad approach by which the program will achieve its five-year goals.]

Outputs [Example: Two model CSHP and PANT policies approved and disseminated.]

[Rollover definition: The amount of product or service that the program intends to provide.]

Short-Term Outcomes [Example: 100% increase in number of schools that implement a tobacco-use prevention policy by providing visible signage and communicating policy to students.]

[Rollover definition: The immediate effects (within 1–3 years) of a program; they often focus on change in knowledge, attitudes, and skills.]

Intermediate Outcomes [Example: PANT policy within CSH framework adopted and implemented in every school district.]

[Rollover definition: Effects of the program that are achieved within 3–5 years of program initiation; they often include change in behavior, norms, and policies.]

Long-Term Outcomes [Example: Sustained implementation of PANT efforts in schools within a CSH framework.]

[Rollover definition: Effects that are achieved within 4–6 years of program initiation; they include changes in organizations and systems.]

Overall Program Goal [Example: Decreased incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases among school-age youth.]

[Rollover definition: Overall mission or purpose of the program, often expressed in terms of changes in morbidity and mortality.]

[This activity is designed to help you match the definition of the components of a logic model with examples of each component. The components include inputs, strategies/activities, outputs, short-term outcomes, intermediate outcomes, long-term outcomes, and the overall program goal.

Inputs are the resources available to operate a program. Examples of inputs are funds, staff, policies, and collaborations.

Strategies are the means or broad approach by which the program will achieve its five-year goals. An example of a strategy is to develop model CSHP and PANT policies for schools and school districts.

Outputs are the amount of product or service that the program intends to provide. An example would be two model CSHP and PANT policies approved and disseminated.

Short-term outcomes are the immediate effects (within 1 to 3 years) of a program; they often focus on change in knowledge, attitudes, and skills. An example of a short-term outcome is a 100% increase in the number of schools that implement a tobacco-use prevention policy by providing visible signage and communicating the policy to students.

Intermediate outcomes are the effects of the program that are achieved within 3 to 5 years of program initiation; they often include change in behavior, norms, and policies. An example of an intermediate outcome would be a PANT policy within CSH framework adopted and implemented in every school district.

Long-term outcomes are the effects that are achieved within 4 to 6 years of program initiation; they include changes in organizations and systems. An example of a long-term outcome is sustained implementation of PANT efforts in schools within a CSH framework.

An overall program goal is the overall mission or purpose of the program, often expressed in terms of changes in morbidity and mortality. An example of an overall program goal is decreased incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases among school-age youth.]
