Introducing IASystem

Online course evaluations were introduced at UW Seattle in autumn 2013 using the new IASystem™ web-based application.  Courses may now be evaluated either online or on paper according to the needs of faculty and departments.  Online interfaces provide faculty, administrators, and staff with access to evaluation processes and results.  Charges for evaluation services have changed: online evaluations are provided free of charge; forms and processing for paper-based evaluations are billed to departments.

Faculty Course Evaluation Requests

    • 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.
