Intro to Digital Measures
When and WhereMay 11 2017 09:00-10:00AM | Evansdale Library G16 (Downstairs Computer Lab)
Come learn about how Digital Measures can help you keep track of your successes! Each session will introduce faculty to the Digital Measures system, review log in procedures, navigating the menu system, adding activity entries, running reports, and submitting a finalized faculty productivity report. Faculty will have the opportunity to walk through these steps on the lab computers.
Digital Measures (DM) provides a web-based faculty activity reporting service. The university contracts with DM for the digital collection and storage of faculty activity in teaching, research/scholarship, and service, as well as biographical and credential information. WVU adopted the system to facilitate faculty evaluation for promotion and tenure, as well as data gathering for accreditation and other purposes.
