Greetings!

The Digital Measures software at KSU contains two modules:  (1) Course Evaluation and (2) Faculty Activity Insight.  The Course Evaluation module facilitates online course evaluations, and the Faculty Activity Insight module allows faculty members to capture all of their activities, such as teaching, scholarship, creative activity, and service.  This module also allows the generation of electronic or hard-copy ARD’s, CV’s, etc. 

When we rolled out the adoption of Digital Measures in 2011, we agreed to start with the student evaluation module and move slowly into the Faculty Activity Insight module.  Some colleges already have mandated or encouraged faculty to use the Faculty Activity Insight module, and some other faculty members have been using it on a volunteer basis.

The time has now arrived to move into the next phase of Faculty Activity Insight implementation.  In order to have a more streamlined and sustainable process, the entire campus will begin using the Faculty Activity Insight module for Annual Reviews as of January 1, 2014.  That is, all activity for 2013 will be captured in Digital Measures and only electronic ARD’s will be used for the next review cycle. 

This timeline allows sufficient time for faculty members to start capturing their information in Digital Measures.  Support will be provided to answer any questions.  Furthermore, colleges will have latitude in deciding how many years of data are needed for this initial period.  That is, some colleges may ask faculty members to enter data for more than just 2013. 

I know there will be a learning curve and even some system glitches in the beginning; however, I have found Digital Measures to be a quick and efficient way to capture information.  Thank you for your efforts in making this much-needed transition into this paperless (or near paperless) and more efficient process.

Digital Measures Implementation

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.

Note:  

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.
