AEFIS - Data Update Schedule (Admin & Instructor)

AEFIS information is updated multiple times a day, from multiple data batch processes. This document explains the timing and schedules of those processes, which may help explain why some information seems out-of-date.

Overview of Data Update Processes

AEFIS retrieves data from UW-Madison's Student Information System (SIS). Different data is updated at different times. Below is a list of several data updates, the timing and frequency, and which data elements are processed.

Aggregate Process Batch
Runs at 7:00am, 2:00pm and 9:00pm: This updates the course evaluation response rates during peak times.

Event Handler Batch
Runs every hour: This batch updates the statuses, populates surveys with course assignments, etc. For example, a course that is not showing because it is Faculty Pending. When you publish this course, it may take an hour for it to appear to assign.

SIS Updates
Runs daily, overnight: Changes made to SIS before 4:00pm will be updated in AEFIS before the next morning.
