Hello. Our team wants to focus only on the outcomes rather than the inputs or activities of a social service program. Do you think it’s a good idea to use the Black Box model in our case? I heard that this model is very simple and easy to be followed. Could anyone kindly give me some comments?

You may try other models as this model is most commonly seen as a minimum standard to be exceeded.

You are right. The Black Box model is simple in that those following this model make few assumptions and take an almost stereotyped “bottom line” approach, concentrating on outcomes without reference to process or the differences between participants.

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
