Step 4: Construct a Logic Model that includes the inputs and outputs (activities and participants) of the program and the intended short, medium, and long-term outcomes or goals. The Logic Model template provided can be used, or you may create one.
Step 5: Provide a description of the program evaluation plan. Identify at least 2 variables that can be operationalized and measured to determine if intended outcomes are achieved. The variables need to flow logically from the target population, the issue being addressed (addiction or relationship satisfaction), the program outputs, and the intended outcomes. Develop a plan for how and when the variables will be measured and how the data generated will be used to evaluate the outcomes (goals). At least 1 of the variables needs to be measured using a formal instrument. Include a brief description of the instrument along with data on its reliability and validity. This step must be presented in narrative format.
The paper must be written in current APA format with a title page, narrative for Step 3, the Logic Model, the narrative for Step 5, and a references page. Feel free to paste the provided template into the document. This assignment will be submitted through SafeAssign.
