Logic Model Template for Supervisory & Managerial Training: This logic model provides agencies with a systematic and visual aid to identify a training program’s components: inputs, outputs, outcomes and evaluation methodologies, and illustrates the relationship among them. The logic model has been prepopulated with Federal supervisory and managerial curriculum-specific examples for agencies to reference when creating their agency-specific logic model. Once completed, the logic model will provide stakeholders with a roadmap that describes the sequence of related events. Stakeholders will also have a clear understanding of the curriculum goals and evaluation.
Note: The Federal Managerial Curriculum Logic Model components have been color-coded to map to each of the stages included in the OPM Training Field Guide Supplement.
Credible evidence is the raw material of a good evaluation. The information learned should be seen by stakeholders as believable, trustworthy, and relevant to answer their questions. This requires thinking broadly about what counts as "evidence." Such decisions are always situational; they depend on the question being posed and the motives for asking it. For some questions, a stakeholder's standard for credibility could demand having the results of a randomized experiment. For another question, a set of well-done, systematic observations such as interactions between an outreach worker and community residents, will have high credibility. The difference depends on what kind of information the stakeholders want and the situation in which it is gathered.
