STEP BY STEP PROCESS FROM LOGIC MODEL TO CASE STUDY METHOD AS AN APPROACH TO EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME EVALUATION

Michael E. Kalu, Kathleen E. Norman

Abstract


Logic models and case study approach to programme evaluation have proven effective in evaluating educational programmes. However, there is no article that has described a step by step process of how a logic model can inform the choice of a case study methodology. In this article, we used the clinical components of a bridging programme in Canada to illustrate the step by step process of logic model to case study methodology. We provided a background to the bridging programme, steps for designing programme evaluation logic model, and subsequently described how programme evaluation would inform the choice of case study methodology. We further described case study methodology ranging from stating the evaluation questions, epistemological position, study proposition and unit of selection, sampling techniques/types, data collection and analysis. In closing, we provided highlights of how to link the evaluation process back to the logic model developed.
