- 4. Once my information is in the system, how can the data be used?
- The system is designed for an individual to enter items and for that information to be used in multiple ways. The most common expected uses for information in the system would include allowing faculty to generate their annual reports. Some colleges are using Digital Measures for RPT documentation; contact your chair to verify RPT usage. UNO is continually looking at ways to improve the functionality of Digital Measures. Faculty focus sessions and chairs' / directors' requests have been how Academic Affairs prioritizes these updates.
Please note that the information in the system is intended to be used for multiple purposes with a variety of potential audiences and should be considered public record. Therefore, anything that might be considered confidential, secure or private should not be entered into Digital Measures.
- 5. Who has access to the information in Digital Measures?
- Faculty members have access to their own accounts. Chairs/directors, selected administrators in Academic and Student Affairs, and other individuals within the appropriate deans' offices can access faculty accounts. Some units have also authorized administrative assistants and/or graduate students to enter items for faculty and they, too, will have access to certain accounts. For any specific information related to this, please contact the Digital Measures Campus Administrator, Daniel P. O'Dell at 402.554.4008 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 6. Do I have to enter information myself?
- Units across campus have chosen a variety of ways to ensure that items are entered into the system. Some units have asked faculty to enter items individually while others have relied on administrative assistants and graduate students to help. The system is structured in such a way that others can be given access to accounts to aid in the entering of information.

- Any questions regarding where a specific type of data should be entered within Digital Measures should be directed to your unit chair/director.
