I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.

“If an evaluator used only a logic model to guide their evaluation what deficits would be created due to limiting their work to only the logic model examples – missing opportunities to gather data or involve stakeholders etc…”

Here below an example use it as a guideline only for you and this exactly what I am expecting from you.

“If an evaluator used only a logic model to guide their evaluation what deficits would be created due to limiting their work to only the logic model examples – missing opportunities to gather data or involve stakeholders etc…”

Not surprisingly, experience shows that best results are achieved when groups of staff and relevant stakeholders work together in developing the logic model (Taylor-Powell, Jones & Henert, 2002). Moreover Patton (2012) argues:

“Methodological appropriateness is the utilization focused gold standard. In practice this means if evaluators are to involve intended users in methods decisions, evaluators and intended users need to understand paradigm-based methods debates and evaluators need to be able to facilitate choices that are appropriate to a particular evaluation’s purpose. This means educating primary stakeholders about the legitimate options available, the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches, the potential advantages and the costs of using multiple mixed methods, and the controversies that surround such choices.” (p. 287-288)

I am wondering if understanding and engaging with stakeholders to this end can be achieved through ethnographic “eyes?” If an ethnographic lens is used to focus the logic model and associated methods, I argue the model that results has the potential to be liberating rather than laden with deficits. A “good” logic model is an elegant summary of a rich process.

Like others here, I am taking this course simultaneously as I take Research Design in Education. I acknowledge I am risking enmeshing the two and I know I may be critiqued for doing so, but I find the two courses representing overlapping modes of inquiry from different origins with diverse but sometimes similar intentions such as social justice impact. Here is another example, I can see using a kind of logic model while planning my dissertation. One of the most important things I am learning from preparing to apply a logic model whether for program evaluation or dissertation planning is both the layering together then teasing apart of outcome and impact. Outcome is consequences for people (e.g., increased knowledge; changes in attitudes, behavior, etc.). While impact is the net causal effects of the program beyond its immediate results. Impact evaluation often involves a comparison of what appeared after the program with what would have appeared without the program. (Taylor-Powell, Jones & Henert, 2002). I imagine too, both research and program development ultimately strive for significant impact.
