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
