For professional staff only. This screen is used for building central elements of staff annual reports. Staff enter activities in which they have engaged in support of a variety of college emphases (e.g., teaching, student success, productivity). Staff also enter their Performance Plan objectives for the reporting year and how effectively they have met them.
For faculty only. This screen is important for the annual report. All narrative questions, whether teaching, scholarship or service related are found here. In addition to these three areas, there are questions related to your assessment activities and contributions to diversity.
This section is used by chairs, deans, and professional staff unit heads to prepare department and school annual reports.
Input your advisement load in this section.
Input your various non-scheduled but for credit activities including directed and independent studies, and graduate thesis.
Include any non-credit instruction. This may include off-campus activities.
Scheduled teaching and grades will be input for you, but check to make sure that things are correct. If needed, contact campus administrator of Activity Insight. You will need to input your IAS scores. Also important, please indicate if your course had a service learning component.
Please input any scholarly or creative products produced during the current academic year into its appropriate category below. Make sure that you indicate the status of the product with dates. As a product progresses, you may change the dates on the entry by simply editing it. When doing so, it seems best to erase the previous dates and input the new ones. For example, last year you had a journal article accepted (but not yet published). This year it was published. Erase the accepted date from the entry and input the published date so that the only date in the entry is the published date.
To aid in data management, if more than one author is from Brockport, the lead author should be responsible for input. The entry will show on all other author’s annual reports.
In general, a dropdown menu lists the types of contributions available in each category. An “other” category exists, but should be avoided unless absolutely necessary to accurately describe the product.
Any artistic or creative contribution is input here. This would include pieces of original literature including non-fiction, fiction or poetry.
Please input any externally funded grants or contracts here.
