Welcome to the
Systems in Evaluation Topical Interest Group (SETIG)
The Systems in Evaluation Topical Interest Group (SETIG) was a community created within the American Evaluation Association to provide a forum for ongoing conversation about the use of systems thinking and systems theory in evaluation.
SETIG focuses on the use of systems thinking and systems theory as a framework for evaluation planning, design, implementation, analysis, and reporting, across a wide range of content areas, and using a diverse array of evaluation approaches, research methods, and data collection and analysis tools.
Areas of interest to TIG members include:
- Evaluation approaches that use systems theory to plan, design, and implement evaluation
- Discussion about how to ground evaluation methods and approaches in systems thinking and theory
- The contributions of diverse perspectives in understanding issues related to the use of systems thinking and theory in evaluation
