Creating a Logic Model Paper
Please pay close attention to the highlighted portions of the directions and rubric to make sure all points are addressed. The Precede paper is what the writer will build on, the health concern is listed there. Please notify me with any questions/concerns.
Logic Model Paper Rubric
- The Creating a Logic Model Paper is worth 210 points and will be graded on quality of information, use of citations, use of standard English grammar, sentence structure, and overall organization based on the required components as summarized in the directions and grading criteria/rubric.
- Create your paper using Microsoft Word (a part of Microsoft Office), which is the required format for all Chamberlain College documents. You can tell that the document is saved as a MS Word document because it will end in “.docx”.
- Follow the directions and grading criteria closely. Any questions about your assignment may be posted under the Q & A Forum.
- The length of the paper is to be no less than 7 pages and no greater than 8 pages, excluding title page and reference pages.
- The paper should be written in 12-point font and double-spaced with APA style citation (in-text citations and references).
- APA format is required with both a title page and reference page. Use the required components of the review as Level 1 headings (upper and lower case, centered, boldface):
Note: Introduction—write an introduction but do not use “Introduction” as a heading in accordance with the rules put forth in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2010, p. 63).
Preparing Your Creating a Logic Model Paper
For this assignment, you will build on the work you completed during Module 3. As you will recall, in Module 3, you were asked to conduct an assessment of a health topic in a community of concern using the PRECEDE portion of the PRECEDE-PROCEED model. This week, you will draw from this assessment and develop an intervention, described in a logic model, to address your health topic of concern. This assignment will comprise one part of your Final Paper for this course. Thus, you will be asked to revise this paper according to instructor feedback and include it in your Final Paper.
For the purpose of this paper:
You will describe a program intervention. Your intervention will be 12 months in length and you are given a budget of no more than $100,000.
- Create a hypothetical organization that has a history working with your identified priority population in your focus community. Feel free to model your organizational description after an actual organization that works with your identified priority population or in your focus community (1 page).
- Describe your organization. Be concise, specific and compelling. Explain what is unique about your organization and why you are well-situated to work with your priority population and to address your identified issue. Use the description to build credibility for your organization.
- Identify at least one agency that you will be collaborating with. Indicate who they are and the purpose of your collaboration. Collaborations come in several different forms. Be sure to explain how this collaboration will work and the role(s) of each organization.
- Describe the health problem within the target population. Incorporate your findings from your Module 3 assignment.
- Present the existence of the health problem. Provide a description of the size of the public health problem at national, state, and local levels. At the local level, make sure to explain how it relates to your target population. Include a bit about the etiology, if appropriate.
- Describe causes of the health problem. Identify the various factors that contribute to the existence of the health problem and discuss this relationship in terms of a causal theory.
- Zero in on specific factor(s) that your organization will address and present a clear, concise, well-supported statement of the problem to be overcome. Make a connection between the issue and your organization. Explain consequences if health problem is not addressed.
- Explain what you intend to accomplish: (1 page)
- Describe your program’s mission.
- Identify your program’s goal(s). Goals should be consistent with the program mission and should broadly identify what your organization wants and expects to accomplish in the future.
- Identify your program’s objectives. Objectives should be SMART and should serve as a “mile marker” towards your stated goal(s). Distinguish between process and outcome (effect) objectives.
- Describe your intervention by developing a logic model.
- Describe your organizational plan. Specify the resources (inputs and capacity) that your organization will need to implement and sustain your program intervention. (1 page)
- Describe your service utilization plan. Describe the project activities that will be accomplished (with available resources) to achieve your program objectives. Describe why you have chosen these activities. Make sure they are realistic. Explain how the service plan will reflect needed cultural sensitivity and appropriateness of services. (1-2 pages)
- Develop a logic model that clearly connects inputs to activities to outputs. For each action step, list projected completion dates and person(s) responsible.
