In Virginia, we have the pleasure of actually hiring new Extension agents right now! As they begin to learn about the Extension programming model and the importance of planning for evaluations I was thinking about what resources might be helpful to them. And although I know it makes many folks groan, nothing beats a logic model for a good introduction to program planning and evaluation! These logic model examples are from the University of Wisconsin Extension Program Development and Evaluation group. Examples are from 4-H, FCS and ANR so worth a look for most Extension agents/educators.
