Five years after launching a new online faculty activity reporting and annual evaluation system at the University of Arizona, what does examination of the benchmark data tell us? Is the data captured in the system useful? The system uses faculty self-report of activity data, including scholarly contributions, combined with integrations of core campus data systems. How does the record of faculty scholarly achievements compare to other licensed tools and services? Is the self-report of faculty activities effective? The system captures information about our faculty not previously recorded. What has the system taught us? How can we creatively employ this data, coupled with existing data sources to create new analytical discovery tools? As we continue to assess and analyze data from the system, we’d like to share our experiences and findings to date.
UA Vitae is a shared effort from the Office of the Provost, University Libraries, University Analytics and Information Research, Office of Research, Discovery and Innovation and University Information and Technology Services. This session will be useful for anybody interested in research information management, faculty activity reporting, profile and/or institutional reporting systems.
