  2. Review of the logic model: The committee carefully reviewed the draft of the logic model and provided suggestions for clarification and additions to the model. The logic model includes the antecedents, the inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes, and impacts of the curriculum in the SOM. The edited document will be placed on the Collab site.

  3. Review of the program evaluation plan: The CEC carefully reviewed the draft of the program evaluation plan. The plan was designed to provide a systematic approach to illustrating the many questions that can be addressed through the program evaluation process. A sub-committee was formed to take the draft and develop it further. Upon completion of this task, the plan will be presented to the curriculum committee and the educational leadership in the SOM. The plan will be on the Collab site.

  4. Next Steps: Continue work on the program evaluation plan. Design a plan to evaluate the next development phase of the curriculum design process (review Hollander article on Collab site).
