Faculty Resources

Faculty are required to report their teaching, service, and research/creative activities for the preceding calendar year by January 15 of each spring semester. Beginning in the 2016-17 academic year, Digital Measures Activity Insight (DMAI) will replace the Faculty Annual Reporting (FAR) system.

The Office of the Executive Vice President for University Academic Affairs has compiled some preliminary information about the transition to the DMAI system. This page will be updated as more information is made available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is required to submit the DMAI?

All full-time long-term faculty. Visiting faculty are not required to complete the DMAI but may do so if they wish. Typically, adjunct faculty will not complete the DMAIHow do I access the DMAI?

Go to One IU and using the search window (What would you like to do?) enter DMAI.

Will the data previously entered into FAR migrate to DMAI?

No. Many elements have been completely revised, thus importing existing data from FAR was not possible.

How many years of data must be entered into DMAI?

At minimum, faculty should enter 2016 data. Over time faculty can elect to enter more data and prior years. It is worth noting that there is a good chance that citations of faculty publications are already stored in another system (e.g., Web of Science, Google Scholar, PubMed). Via Activity Insight, faculty can automatically import relevant publications into their profile, negating the need to do so manually.

What if I can’t access DMAI or if the information that has been imported from IU Systems (appointment data, courses, contracts, fellowships, or grants is incorrect?

There is no submit button in DMAI. After you have entered your information, we will be able to run reports based on the most current data. You do not need to do anything other enter information in all applicable fields.
