The annual evaluation and planning process provides faculty with an opportunity to report on their accomplishments for the current year and to plan their teaching, research and service agendas for the coming year. This process consists of an evaluation phase and a planning phase.
All faculty members—tenured, tenure track, contractual, full time and half time—are required to participate in this process; adjunct faculty are not. The faculty member enters data to be considered for her/his performance evaluation for the current year through Digital Measures, and also runs her/his Annual Faculty Performance Report (AFPR), Non-Instructional Productivity Report (NIPR), and Planned Faculty Portfolio (PFP) report via Digital Measures, and transmits these to the division chair. Digital Measures is available through your My UB portal.
The faculty member provides the Planned Faculty Portfolio (PFP) information on Digital Measures. This information must be revised during the academic year if there is any change to the percentages allotted to each of Instruction, Scholarship/Creative Work and/or Service. PFP information is included on the Annual Faculty Performance Review document through Digital Measures.
The faculty member also completes the Outside Employment Form for the upcoming year and submits it to the division chair.
The APFR and NIPR are run as reports from your Digital Measures account. From there, you can print them and provide the hard copies to your division chair. We also recommend you keep a copy for yourself.
