The Catalyst Web Tools login is at https://catalyst.uw.edu/.

Accessing the Catalyst tool so that you can attach your class list is slightly different depending on where the tool was built: your personal Catalyst account accessed with your UW NetID and password, a shared account you own or are an administrator on, or a shared account you don’t own/administer that a GA built Catalyst tools on for you.

In all cases, to attach your class list, you must ultimately be logged in to Catalyst Web Tools with your own UW NetID and password.

If the particular tool was built in your personal Catalyst account, go directly to instructions for

If the tool was built in a shared account you own or are an administrator on, once you have logged in to Catalyst Web Tools with your own UW NetID and password, you can switch to tools in the shared account from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner and then attach your class list according to the instructions linked above for each tool. Read more about switching to shared account.

If the tool was built in a shared account that you do not own and are not an administrator on, your UW NetID must be entered as an Administrator in each tool before you can attach your class list to it. Usually your UW NetID is added by the GA or TA setting up the tool for you or you can add it yourself if you know the shared account ID and password. To add an instructor to a Catalyst tool built on a shared account:

  • For a Collect It > from Actions > choose Manage > edit Access & Roles > add UW NetID in box Administrators IDs
  • For a GoPost > from Actions > choose Manage > edit Participant Access & Roles > edit Roles > add UW NetID in box Enter usernames of administrators
  • For a WebQ > from Actions > choose Manage (goes to Summary page) > edit Collaboration > Choose collaboration groups (if not already showing as Administrator in a group) > to create a group with instructor UW NetID and select with Administrator permissions
  • For a GradeBook >  from Actions > choose Manage > edit Roles > click Select groups > choose instructor group from Your Groups or click to create a group with instructor UW NetID and select and Save.

Once you have been added as an administrator to tools built on a shared account that you do not own or are not an account administrator on, you must log in to the Catalyst Web Tools with your personal UW NetID and password and attach your class list as described in the instructions linked above for tools built on your personal Catalyst account.

Special requirement for GradeBooks built on a shared account you do not own and are not an administrator on: once you have attached your class list, you or your GA or TA must go into Manage > edit Roles > and click the box in front of your name in Instructors of Record or you will not be able to submit the grades to the Registrar.
