One of the most important reasons for information systems failure is lack of quality. Information Systems Quality (ISQ) evaluation is important to prevent the lack of quality. ISQ evaluation is one of the most important Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) problems. The concept of Single Valued Triangular Neutrosophic Numbers (SVTrN-numbers) is a generalization of fuzzy set and intuitionistic fuzzy set that make it is the best fit in representing indeterminacy and uncertainty in MCDM. This paper aims to introduce an ISQ evaluation model based on SVTrN- numbers with introducing two types of evaluating and ranking methods. The results indicated that the proposed model can handle ill-known quantities in evaluating ISQ. Also by analyzing and comparing results of ranking methods, the results indicated that each method has its own advantage that make the proposed model introduces more than one option for evaluating and ranking ISQ.
