2013-2014 Faculty Annual Activity Report (FAAR)
We are pleased to announce that the course workload for the Spring 2014 semester has been prepopulated into DM under Section II. Screen C. Scheduled Teaching/Course Innovations. For you, this means that you must now go back into DM and complete this remaining section. Simply select one course at a time and fill in all the open fields. Entering this last piece of data will help you complete your 2013-2014 FAAR. You can also take this opportunity to review all other sections in DM, and/or backfill data.
All full-time faculty (including 1 year and special appointments) are asked to complete a FAAR.
To access DM, simply go to http://www.southernct.edu/faar and log in using your MySCSU username and password. This database system is easy to use and will allow you to maintain your professional information in a secure electronic format. Once all of your information is entered, you will be able to easily update your files and generate CV's and reports for renewal, promotion, tenure, and professional assessment purposes.
The completion deadline is June 30, 2014. Remember, there is no need to submit your FAAR as once you have saved information it is loaded into DM. We do require, however, that you 'select' the red text at the top of the Activities Screen to indicate that you have filled in all fields and screens for DM sections I - V, for both the Fall and Spring 2013-2014 semesters. The red text can be found at the top of Digital Measures' Activities Database University Main Menu page and reads: Required: Click here to indicate that you've completed this year's FAAR. Once you have selected the text, choose 'add a new item,' pick the academic year for which you have just entered data, enter data into the field for 'date completed', and then hit 'save and return.' By hitting 'save and return' you will receive credit for completing your FAAR.
