Evaluation

Shift assesses many of its successes through the use of a program logic model (see Program Materials for a copy of their logic model). 

A “logic model” is a road map of a program – it communicates what the program is and will do. It outlines what the underlying set of assumptions (or “theory”) are and the links in the chain of reasoning about “what causes what” in relationship to the desired goal. Shift’s logic model outlines all aspects of the program (inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes, potential impact, indicators of success and how they will measure success).

Shift is currently compiling information collected in client satisfaction and behaviour surveys as well as the tracking of case notes to report on the above indicators. See the Client Feedback Evaluation Form in Program Materials.
