UW Seattle

The Office of Educational Assessment manages course evaluation services for the UW Seattle campus with our web-based software application, IASystem™.

Transition to Online Evaluations

During the 2013-14 academic year, IASystem™ was gradually introduced to departments across UW Seattle. The new IASystem™ application enables courses to be evaluated online or on paper. However, starting Fall 2014, as a part of the UW paper reduction efforts, we are encouraging wide-spread adoption of online evaluations at the UW Seattle campus.

(Please note: Effective Fall 2014, all paper-based evaluations incur a fee while online evaluations will be offered free of charge.)

Requesting Course Evaluations


    • Contact your departmental evaluation coordinator to setup an online evaluation for your course. If you are unsure who your coordinator is, contact iasuw@uw.edu.
    • If your department does not have an evaluation coordinator, you may directly request either online or paper-based evaluations for an individual class using our online order form.


    • Setup and manage online or paper evaluations using the IASystem™ web-based software application.  To be added as a coordinator, please contact our office at iasuw@uw.edu.
