Thematic evaluations focus on some content package or theme (e.g. further education abilities provided by the general upper secondary school). The target may also be the evaluation of the state of a certain form of education. (e.g. special needs education in general upper secondary school). System evaluations study the education system as a whole or its part, educational policy and its implementation or education system renewal and development processes (e.g. functioning of the curriculum system).
In thematic and system evaluation, multidisciplinary planning and evaluation group will be formed for the evaluation project. The evaluation will use inclusive and varied evaluation methods. The key is to take into account the perspectives of various stakeholders, critical and profound study of the phenomenon to be evaluated and to get a comprehensive understanding of the evaluation target.
