The Instructional Assessment System (IAS) has been developed over several decades of use at the University of Washington and other institutions. We are continually developing and expanding the capabilities of our system to adapt to the evolving needs of higher education. We provide the tools and services needed to collect and summarize student ratings of instruction, and the information we provide helps students select courses, assists faculty in instructional development, and informs administrative decision-making. Today, OEA's course evaluation system is used in more than 12,000 UW courses annually, and at over 60 other post-secondary institutions.
About Our Forms
We offer a variety of forms to evaluate diverse instructional formats (Forms A-L) or educational outcomes (Form X). We also offer a comment sheet that allows students to give open-ended feedback.

We conduct periodic studies relating to the validity and reliability of IAS evaluations.
