Friends

Will you be our friend?  We plan to put together a “friends” group with representatives from each college. This group will communicate with faculty in their college to keep them up to date on all things Digital Measures and help us further adapt Digital Measures to meet your department’s needs.  We plan to meet quarterly or more often as needed.  If you would like to volunteer to represent your college or would like more information then click below!

Goals / Individual Objectives

For those of you in the pilot, you may have noticed that the Individual Objectives in Workflow have a due date of September 15, 2019. This will enable you to go back and revise your objectives up until that date.  Of course, your department head will determine when he/she would like to review them.  Once submitted, you will still be able to revise them.  Just shoot us an email and we will send them back to you for revisions.

We conducted an EDO pilot for the 2018-2019 evaluation period. We thank the following departments for their participation: Communication, English, Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures, Performing Arts, Philosophy and Religion, Political Science and Public Service, Counselor Education, Integrated Studies, Interior Design, Learning and Leadership, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, School of Education, School of Nursing, School Psychology, and Social Work. They provided us with great feedback which enabled us to enhance the process for our next round of annual evaluations. HHP, Accounting, Psychology, and Engineering Management and Technology will be joining us for the 2019-2020 round of our pilot.

Thank you for your feedback!
