Instructional Analysis Information System (IAIS)

The Instructional Analysis Information System is used by the Office of Policy Analysis and Research and by the Institutional Research offices on most UW campuses. It provides institutional, divisional, departmental, and clustered information essential for the general management, academic planning, and budget planning efforts of the UW System. It combines data from three general areas: curricular and student data, personnel data, and financial data to calculate faculty accountability and credit costing measurements such as cost per credit reports, cost per FTE student reports and student/faculty ratio reports.
