  2. Program Logic / Theory of Change Training- November 6th – 7th 2014

    6th November, 2014 to 7th November, 2014

    This workshop introduces the program logic concept and lays out a step by step process for creating a logic model. Program logic models illustrate the expected cause-and-effect relationships between activities, immediate changes, intermediate outcomes and final outcomes for a given program. Often represented as a diagram, a program logic model shows a series of expected consequences, not just a sequence of events. Articulating a program logic often requires 'backward mapping'.

  3. Developing a Logic Model or Theory of Change, Community Toolbox, University of Kansas


    This chapter from the University of Kansas Work Group for Community Health and Development 'Community Toolbox' contains a detailed overview of logic models and theory of change development relevant to the related construction of the realist matrix.

  4. Theory of Change Community


    Theory of Change Community is a website useful for anyone interested in or working with Theory of Change. On the website you will find tools and resources for mapping outcomes, identifying indicators, bringing assumptions to the surface, and many other aspects of using and working with the Theory of Change approach to planning and evaluation.

  5. Contribution Analysis


    Contribution Analysis is an approach for assessing causal questions and inferring causality in real-life program evaluations. It offers a step-by-step approach designed to help managers, researchers, and policymakers arrive at conclusions about the contribution their program has made (or is currently making) to particular outcomes. The essential value of contribution analysis is that it offers an approach designed to reduce uncertainty about the contribution the intervention is making to the observed results through an increased understanding of why the observed results have occurred (or not!) and the roles played by the intervention and other internal and external factors.

  6. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 20: Defining what needs to be evaluated

    13th May, 2013

    Whether you are commissioning an evaluation, designing one or implementing one, having - and sharing - a very clear understanding of what is being evaluated is paramount. For complicated or complex interventions this isn't always as straight forward as it sounds, which is why BetterEvaluation offers specific guidance on options for doing this.

  7. Theory of Change


    This guide, written by Patricia Rogers for UNICEF, looks at the use of theory of change in an impact evaluation. It demonstrates how it can be useful for identifying the data that needs to be collected and how it should be analysed. It also highlights its use as a framework for reporting.
