Digital Measures

Questions about the 2020 Annual Performance and Planning Review (APPR) Process?

Take a look at our DM User Guide à How To: Annual Review (APPR) Process here to find:

  • An overview of the Goals and Assignments screens
  • The recently added Audit Report for supervisors and workflow assistants to check the APPR status for a group of faculty at-a-glance.
  • And the 2020 APPR Video Tutorial Series

Digital Measures is UTHSC’s web-based faculty activity reporting system that allows faculty members to track their teaching, research and service activities and accomplishments, including clinical care. Faculty information is captured once and can then be used in multiple ways, including annual reviews, enhanced reviews (tenure, promotion, post-tenure review), web profiles, and reports for various groups. Listen below to Dr. Lori Gonzalez, Chief Academic Officer, describe the benefits of using the Digital Measures system.


What's New with Digital Measures

The new faculty web profiles are almost here!

Your current faculty face page will soon be replaced by a new profile automatically populated with your Digital Measures activities. This will allow you to control the content that displays on your profile and make updates easily through Digital Measures.

What you need to do now:

  • Ensure you have an updated headshot on file with Communications. You may schedule a photo session with them here.
  • Update your activities in Digital Measures, paying particular attention to areas such as publications, presentations, awards and honors, and sponsored research.
  • If you have a separate profile through your UTHSC department or division, note that these will be retired and replaced with the new Digital Measures profiles. You may wish to copy the information from your departmental profile and add it to the appropriate section in Digital Measures, such as the "Biography and Expertise" screen.

Select which activities you would like to display on your profile. By default, activities are toggled "on" and will display on your profile. If you would like to hide any activities, log into Digital Measures and navigate to the desired section. Toggle the record "off" to hide it from public view on your profile.
