Instructions to Complete your Yearlong Workload Report in Digital Measures

Overview: There are three main "Forms" in Digital Measures that pull data into the Yearlong Workload Report.

  • Scheduled Teaching | Teaching Workload - Connects workload data to appear in the Category A. Teaching Workload section of your report.
  • Non-Teaching Workload - Connects workload data to Associated Activities in Research and Service to appear in the Category B. Non Teaching Workload section of your report.
  • Workload Information Summary - This is the final 'main' page in which you upload your Digital Measures generated Yearlong Workload Report, enter your total Direct / Indirect Time and Percent Time data, report your Faculty Research Consulting Act data, and digitally sign off on your Workload Summary.

These three main pages are dependent, to a small degree, on five other supporting "Forms" that can vary depending on the unique workload of each faculty member. A faculty member may want to check the record data in the following forms found on the Activities / Manage Activities home page to confirm that all pertinent information is accurate and present. The supporting "Forms" are as follows: Scheduled Teaching / Teaching Workload, Research Currently in Progress, and Service - Department, College, University, Professional & Public.
