Faculty Education and Graduate Status records update delayed (1/12/15)
Due to technical communication issues between our Faculty Information System and the Digital Measures database, faculty education and graduate status records in Digital Measures have not been updated since the major FIS update and clean-up during the summer of 2014. We apologize for this delay, and will let you know when the update is complete. At that point, you will be able to check your Digital Measures record for accuracy. Thank you for your patience.
Note to CHSS Faculty on Annual Reviews: (1/4/15)
We have made some changes to your ARD and FPA forms so that you will not have to do as much editing to the Word document to match your accomplishments with your goals. You will be entering your 2014 goals into the screen labelled
“Goals for your Faculty Performance Agreement”
and then you will select the accomplishments that relate to that goal from a drop-down menu.
Instructions to follow to create your report can be found at the link to the left labelled "Annual Reviews Training and Help." It should now all be working, so if you have any questions or problems, please email Meghan Burke at email@example.com
Digital Measures option for portfolio submission will not be implemented this year (8/16/14)
The plan for allowing all faculty who wished to submit portfolios using Digital Measures has been delayed for at least a year due to consolidation. This recommendation was made the one of the consolidation operational working groups. There are a few pilot testers who will use the system, but if you do not already know that you are one of these, you should submit your portfolio the traditional way.
Have you finished your ARD and FPA? Then it's time to upload them into DM-FAI!
Log in, and go to "Manage Your Activities." Under "General Information," there is a screen called "Performance Evaluations for Your Faculty Activity Report." Enter the calendar year, and upload your final, signed ARD and/or FPA there. If you are not in the Coles College, you probably leave the rest of the fields on this screen blank. Note: The ARD that you just completed is for 2013, and the FPA you just completed is for 2014. They will go on different screens. Eventually, your 2014 ARD will go on the same screen as your 2014 FPA. If you have your 2013 FPA, you can upload that to the same screen as your 2013 ARD.
We have discovered that the Graduate Faculty Status field in Academic Affairs' Faculty Information System (FIS) has not been updated in some time, perhaps as long as 2-3 years. This means that if Graduate Faculty Status is printed on an Annual Review Document, or on a Faculty Performance Agreement, it may not be current. To correct this issue, FIS will need to be updated, and then the changes will need to be uploaded into Digital Measures. This may not be done in time to meet some Annual Review deadlines. In those cases, faculty should edit that status on their ARD and FPA Word documents before emailing them to their chairs.
