Digital Measures

What is Digital Measures?

As of 2010, the College of Letters and Science will use the Digital Measures [DM] web-based activity reporting system to complete the annual summary exercise. Through this customized solution, the College plans to collect information about the teaching, research, and service accomplishments of faculty members in an accessible, easy-to-use digital format.

Why use a web-based activity reporting system?

Once this data is collected, it will be possible to efficiently and accurately generate real-time reports with the click of a button. For L&S faculty, this transition from paper-based reporting will prove just as beneficial:

  • 24/7 Access. Update your activities from any computer with an Internet connection, eliminating the last-minute stress of compiling an annual summary; if you update your activities regularly, your annual summary is just a click away.
  • Save time. Enter your activities once and easily generate custom deliverables for your CV and tenure or promotion reviews using DM’s powerful reporting tools.
  • Eliminate “status updates.” When up-to-date faculty accomplishments are always available, administrators can compile updated reports without the need to contact you for your most recent activities.
  • Facilitate collaboration. Unifying faculty data from across the College can identify possible cross-disciplinary partnerships and appropriately direct funding opportunities.

How do I use Digital Measures?
