AEFIS – Assessment, Evaluation, Feedback, & Intervention System

AEFIS is a cloud-based tool that facilitates the collection and application of learning assessment data. Adopted by UW-Madison in 2016, AEFIS is currently used for several Student Learning Assessment initiatives including course evaluation surveys, program assessment plans, as well as course syllabi.

The transition to digital course evaluations using AEFIS is led by the Office of the Provost, in partnership with DoIT Academic Technology and AEFIS LLC, and is part of a larger campus initiative to build a next-generation student digital ecosystem to enhance university wide systems that support academic planning and student learning.

AEFIS is part of the Learn@UW suite of learning technologies. More information about AEFIS, updates, events and how to work with the Learn@UW-Madison learning technology consultants are available on the DoIT Academic Technology website.
