Welcome

8/10/21, 3:30pm: The problem with refreshing the report entitled "Information for Portfolio Review" has been resolved.  You should be able to refresh the report and submit your portfolio.  Please email digitalmeasures@kennesaw.edu if you have any other problems or questions.

 

==================================================

May 6, 2021: External Letter workflows have been launched

All workflows which require external letters (including tenure-track promotion and/or tenure, but not including non-tenure track promotion, pre-tenure review, and post-tenure review) have now been launched.  If you expect to submit a portfolio in Fall, 2021, for a review which requires external letters, and you do not have a portfolio workflow in your DM inbox, please email digitalmeasures@kennesaw.edu immediately.

 

February 3, 2021:  Entering Workload percentages

Faculty and administrators:  Please note that ALL FPAs for 2021 MUST contain workload percentages.  Before you submit, enter these in the screen "Yearly Workload Summary" under the Adminstrative Data in the Activities tab.  If your FPA does not have this data, it will be returned to you.  See the "FAQ for Annual Reviews" link under the "Activity Insight" menu to the left.

December 16, 2020: Slight delay in Annual Review launch.

Due to a delay in uploading the faculty lists, there will be a slight delay in launching the Annual Review workflows.  Please note that faculty can do most of the work to prepare for the Annual Review without the workflow.  Go to the Annual Review FAQs linked below "Activity Insight" to the left to get started.  

We expect workflows to be launched by Monday, 12/21.

July 24, 2020:  Launch of portfolio workflows.

We have launched Promotion and Tenure Workflows.  EVERYONE who is planning to come up for Promotion and/or Tenure in Fall, 2020, should now have a Promotion and/or Tenure workflow in their Digital Measures inbox.  If you do not, you MUST email digitalmeasures@kennesaw.edu IMMEDIATELY.  For instructions on completing your portfolio,  look at the page to the left under "Activity Insight" labelled "Portfolio Information for Candidates" and make sure you look at the FAQ's linked from that page as well.  Please send any questions or problems to digitalmeasures@kennesaw.edu

Pretenure, Third-year Review, and Post-Tenure Review workflows will come out soon.  BUT if you are up for one of those reviews and you are planning to come up for promotion instead, you should already see your workflow.

May 4, 2020:  Timeline Extensions due to Covid-19.

KSU is deeply committed to the continued success of faculty and is taking steps to ensure that the coronavirus pandemic does not impede tenure-track progress. To this end, tenure-track and tenured faculty may request a one-year extension to the remaining probationary period leading up to their required tenure and promotion review, required tenure review, or required post-tenure review. This option is available to all current tenure-track and tenured faculty with a required tenure and promotion review, required tenure review, and required post-tenure review in 2020-2021 or later.  Additionally, tenure-track faculty who are required to have a pre-tenure review beginning in either fall 2020 or fall 2021 may request a one-year postponement of this review, advancing it to the next year.

This request will be acknowledged by the dean. If you wish to rescind your decision in the future, you must do so on or before the second Friday of March of the year you are submitting.

If you have received an email from DM, you have been identified as one of those faculty members whose timeline could possibly be impacted by KSU’s response to COVID-19.

Your decision needs to be made by June 15, 2020, by submitting the item in your DM Workflow Inbox.

Note: Please refer to your Yearly Unit Data screen in Activity Insight for your current promotion and tenure review dates.

August 23 2019: Note to Reviewers having trouble with Links

If the "List of Links to Supplemental Evidence Files" was saved as an .rtf file, the links may not work. The solution to this is to change the suffix to .doc or .docx, and then open it in Word. Then the links should work.

MAY 8, 2019:  Instructions for Fall, 2019, Portfolios now available

The instructions to help faculty submit Portfolios are now available from the link to the left under "Activity Insight" called "Portfolio Information for Candidates."  

Dr. Traci Redish in the Bagwell College of Education has made videos to assist that college's faculty, and she has kindly made the videos (linked at the page described above) about submitting to Workflow available to the other colleges. If you have any questions or problems, unless you are in the Bagwell College, please do not send them to Dr. Redish, but send them to digitalmeasures@kennesaw.edu.

JUNE 13, 2018:  CHANGES IN PROGRESS

We are currently making changes to streamline how your data in Digital Measures Activity Insight appears.

The purpose is to make a simpler, more sensible appearance to users. For example, we will:
(1) streamline some screens that really belong together (e.g., Department Service, College Service, etc., will all be one screen, with just a qualifier to choose from a drop-down)
(2) rename some screens so that it is easier to understand what goes there (e.g., “Intellectual Property” will be renamed “Publications”)
(3) make some screens visible only to the relevant users (e.g., “Librarianship” will only be visible to librarians).

We will maintain all existing data, so do not panic if you don’t see your data where you thought it would be — it’s probably on a screen that’s been moved or renamed.

Also, please note that for portfolio submissions this year, we are moving some of the process from the screens directly to the workflow process.  So you should work on steps 1 and 2, and hold off on steps 3 and 4, of the instructions at:

If you have any questions, please email digitalmeasures@kennesaw.edu.

 

APRIL 23, 2018:  PLEASE NOTE UPCOMING CHANGES 

After working with a committee of faculty, staff and administrators looking into alternatives to Digital Measures “Activity Insight” (the platform used for submitting Promotion and Tenure portfolios as well as other portfolios), it has been determined that we will continue to use Activity Insight for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 Academic Years. You will see some cosmetic changes in the appearance of Activity Insight. There are also updates being made to the “Workflow” module that is used to move portfolios through the system. These changes will begin in the next few days and will be in place for fall portfolio submissions.

Student Evaluations of Courses

As previously announced, Digital Measures is no longer supporting the end of course student evaluation platform called “Course Response.” Effective 01 July 2018, we will be moving to a new product called “eXplorance Blue.”

For May Session and the 4- Week Session I, both ending in June, student evaluations of courses will be conducted using “Course Response.”

For 4-Week Session II, 6-week, 8-week, and 10-week sessions, as well as subsequent semesters, student evaluations of courses will be conducted using “eXplorance Blue.”

Details about accessing and using “eXplorance Blue” will be forthcoming.

==========================================================

PLEASE READ: FACULTY WHO HAVE SUBMITTED OR WILL SUBMIT PORTFOLIOS

It is ESSENTIAL that you do NOT change any of the files that you have uploaded and linked to in your submitted portfolio documents.  This will break the links, and your reviewers will not be able to see your old file OR your new file.  (It's also against the rules about adding to or changing portfolio materials after the deadline.)  In particular, if you change the narrative file (or even re-upload the same file), the link will be broken and your reviewers will not be able to review your submission.
