The Research, Technology and Development (RTD) Evaluation Topical Interest Group (TIG) within the American Evaluation Association has as its mission to advance the field of performance measurement and in-depth assessment of programs, particularly publicly funded RTD programs.
We provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, good practice, and emerging tools by:
- organizing the RTD portion of the AEA conference each year
- collecting and disseminating information related to good practice, as well as events of interest, and gray literature
Meeting and registration information is now available for Evaluation 2016
. The annual Conference will be held from Wednesday, October 26th through Saturday, October 29th, 2016 in Atlanta. Professional development workshops will precede (October 24-26) and follow (October 29).
Please join us for the RTD TIG Business meeting on the night of Thursday, October 27th. This meeting is open to all conference participants and will feature "Brief Views from the Field" whereby students from the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Public Policy will give brief (3-5 minute) talks to the TIG community in order to provide an academic perspective on up-to-date research in our field and to spur discussion across our community.
