Pacific Education Research Resource Modules
The Pacific Education Research Resource (PERR) is an innovative computer-based, interactive set of two modules. The first module, the Education Logic Model (ELM) Application, is designed to guide users through creating a logic model for planning and evaluating programs. The second module, the Program Outcomes, Measures, and Targets (POMT) Application, helps users monitor their programs by providing a method to assess progress and identify and resolve issues.
The ELM Application is a downloadable computer app that runs locally on Google Chrome and does not require you to connect to the internet. The program will guide you through a series of questions, and give you opportunities to enter your program resources, actions, and outcomes. Once all of your program information is entered, you will be prompted to draw lines between each component, illustrating their cause-and-effect relationships. The end result is a printable logic model which functions as a map for you and your team, visually connecting intended activities with intended ouputs and outcomes.
The ELM app has now been updated to version 1.03, with improved saving features and bug fixes, as well as all four quick reference guides. To read more about the benefits of using logic models, the ELM Application, and how to download, please visit the ELM page.
