This unit emphasizes ethical concerns for individual participants and communities. You will demonstrate your understanding of logic models by applying this concept to a real-world action research study.

OBJECTIVES

To successfully complete this learning unit, you will be expected to:

1. Apply ethical standards when conducting community-based research.

2. Apply logic model principles to an action research study.

3. Analyze the action taken (or recommended) based on the results of the selected CBPR study.

4. Communicate through writing that is concise, balanced, and logically organized.

For the logic model portion of this assignment, identify the following:

• Program name.

• Situation.

• Inputs.

• Outputs activities and participation.

• Outcomes short, medium, and long.

• Assumptions.

• External Factors.

Indicate the relationship between inputs, outputs, and outcomes. The logic model you develop should be appropriate to the research design in the Gonzalez et al. study.

2. Then you will write a paper analyzing the research design and actions.

For the analysis portion of this assignment, address the following:

• Analyze the research design of the Gonzalez et al. study.

◦ How could the design of the project have been improved?

• Analyze the action taken (or recommended) based on the results of the Gonzalez study.

◦ In other words, how did the research lead to action, based on the results of the study?

• Justify your rationale throughout your assignment with information from the Gonzalez et al. article as well as from your textbook readings.

• Communicate through writing that is concise, balanced, and logically organized.

• Communicate through writing that applies current APA style and formatting and conforms to all assignment instructions.

• Program name.

• Situation.

• Inputs.

• Outputs activities and participation.

SCORING GUIDE:

•Develops a logic model appropriate for the organization of the selected CBPR study, explains how it is appropriate for the organizational needs, and identifies areas of uncertainty, knowledge gaps, or additional information that would be needed in order to improve the logic model for the organization. 

•Analyzes the research design of a CBPR study, and uses professionally validated criteria to analyze the appropriateness of the recommendations for improvement. 

•Analyzes the action taken (or recommended) based on the results of the selected CBPR study, and describes in logical detail how the research led to action or recommendations based on the results of the selected CBPR study. 

•Consistently communicates through scholarly writing that is concise, balanced, and logically organized, that flows with smooth transitions between ideas, and that demonstrates critical analysis of the literature.
