About Digital Measures

Digital Measures – Activity Insight is a tool for SMU faculty to keep a record of their teaching, publications, presentations, and service, as well as awards and accomplishments in one centralized location. This data is primarily a way for you to keep an up-to-date record of your work and accomplishments as a member of the SMU faculty but is also used for annual reports, such as the Faculty Activity and Endowed Chair Reports, provided to deans and the provost office for salary decisions and endowment reporting.

CRITICAL USER NOTE: When entering data into Digital Measures yourself, or when verifying data uploaded for you, please ensure that one or more date fields are completed. Digital Measures uses dates to drive almost all reporting.

If dates are left out altogether or they’re incomplete,
the reports generated by that data may be incomplete or inaccurate.
