Visit the New SETIG Website
The Systems TIG has launched Its new website. The site has been constructed using WordPress to provide greater flexibility and functionality for TIG members and others interested in systems and evaluation. We will be transitioning all current TIG information and activities to this site, so bookmark it now and visit often.

It’s easy to become a member of the site – you’ll find a registration box on the right side of the home page under News and Announcements. You may use the site without registering, but, if you wish to post comments, resources, or other materials to the site, you will need to register as a member.

We envision the site as an evolving home on the web for those of us with an interest in systems, evaluation, and the intersection of the two. Many of our plans for the site revolve around supporting the Systems TIG and helping members stay connected between annual meetings.

We’ll be adding new features as we go along, so come visit us and bookmark the site to keep up with developments. We can be found at If you have any questions, suggestions, or run into problems, feel free to contact our webmaster Jan Noga

Who We Are

The Systems in Evaluation TIG (SETIG)
 formed as the result of a series of sessions on systems thinking in evaluation offered during AEA’s 2002 annual meeting in Washington, DC. 

Created to provide a forum for ongoing conversation about the use of systems thinking and systems theory in evaluation, the TIG has greatly expanded in size and scope, with membership exceeding 450.

The TIG 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
