The University uses a software package called Digital Measures to collect and format the information required for academic faculty merit applications. It is mandatory for all faculty to use this package.
Contact Christina Hilfer if you have questions about the Digital Measures system.
Frequently Asked Questions about Digital Measures
In previous years I submitted physical copies of my journal publications and other supporting documentation, do we still do this?
The Digital Measures System asks for a lot of information I wouldn't submit with my regular Merit Evaluation, am I required to fill it all out anyways?
Sufficiency is to differentiate between full time and part time faculty. In the Sufficiency box, it provides two options: Participating and Supporting. Participating is used if the person is a full-time faculty and supporting is used if the person is a part-time instructor (LOA).
It is at 100% for a full-time faculty if the combined percentage of time spent by the person on teaching, research and service is all related to the College. It is less than 100% if the faculty has a joint appointment between various colleges. We don't have joint appointments for the regular (full-time) college faculty.
I am working with a student on an internship but that course is not listed in Scheduled Teaching. Where do I account for this?
My summer courses that I taught do not show up in the scheduled teaching section. How do I account for these courses?
You will input those courses into the section "Other Instruction Taught".
When you enter a Publication or Conference/Seminar Presentation, is it required to fill out the “Abstract/Synopsis” in the text box?
I noticed that there is a publication in my information that says it was entered by another faculty member. How did they do this?
When entering a publication and you choose the author of the publication if you choose it from the drop down list instead of typing it in, it will associate that publication with the person that you added as an author. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you type in all of the authors names. If you choose them from the list you could add items to a faculty members merit application that they do not want and potentially affect their merit.
