The University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Welcome to SAIS

The Student Assessment of Instruction System (SAIS), a service of the University of Tennessee Office of Institutional Research and Assessment, provides for student evaluation of teaching at the University. SAIS operates by a mandate of the Faculty Senate. The evaluation instruments are based upon those originally developed by the University of Washington.

While SAIS developed as an in-class, scan form procedure, as of Fall 2011 all evaluations take place online. All SAIS responses are subject to the Tennessee Open Records Law. This applies to both structured and open-ended responses. Results of the assessment are provided to the instructors as well as published in the Student Government Association Tennessee 101.
