Step 8 - Develop Dosage Probation Logic Model

The development of a logic model is a key step in articulating the components and expected outcomes of the dosage probation effort. It is built upon—and in service of—a new vision for probation services, and is informed by a careful analysis of current policy and practice in the context of evidence-based research. The logic model describes currently available resources, activities that will be retained and those that will be changed or added, the outputs that these activities and changes will produce, and their intended long-term impacts.

The result of building a logic model is a picture that describes a theory of change—as well as a tool for strategically managing the processes of implementation and evaluation.
