Digital Measures is the name of the company that sells software used by Mays faculty to manage, organize, and report on faculty activities (i.e., their CV data).
Digital Measures Features:
- Comprehensive solution that meets Mays Business School’s requirements
- Easy-to-use and intuitive Web-based interface
- Ensures accuracy of data
- Offers robust standard reporting, but also ad hoc reporting capabilities
After faculty enter their activity information into the Digital Measures repository, the information can be used to generate reports for all stakeholders from the faculty member his/herself to academic leaders (e.g., department chairs, deans, etc.). Faculty will not be asked on a ‘one-off’ basis for information for individual reports that need to be prepared such as for accreditation, annual merit appraisals, rankings, and media surveys.

We create a Digital Measures account for all new faculty when they arrive at Mays. Basic personal information is added to your account profile. While some of your basic teaching data will be uploaded by obtaining data from the TAMU Howdy system, you are expected to review the teaching data for accuracy each semester. Individual faculty are responsible for adding all other activity data. Please see Faculty Resources below for additional information.
You can add one of these or any attachments on the Manage Activities tool.
You can enter publication data manually OR with an import. There are two ways to import publications into Digital Measures:
- Importing a BibTeX file. A BibTeX file can be uploaded from your computer and allows you to import citations from Google Scholar or other databases.
- Finding a PubMed file. PubMed allows you to search for citations (for publications) based on multiple criteria you specify.
Please see Faculty Resources below for additional information.
The short answer is “no”. Not every screen or field is relevant to every faculty member. Some screens and fields will also be populated from other sources. Please see Faculty Resources below for additional information.
In general, faculty are responsible for entering their own data and confirming that any imported data (from other TAMU or Mays systems and/or citation systems) is correct. While each unit at Mays has an assigned Digital Measures resource person, the decision to allocate such resources to data entry is left to the discretion of the unit head.
All data provided by and collected for Mays Business School by Digital Measures is solely owned by Mays Business School. As per the terms in Digital Measures’ standard service agreement, this data cannot be disclosed, reused, sold, or disseminated in any way by Digital Measures.
The Mays Digital Measures Administrator sets user access permissions for the faculty, administrators, and staff. The Mays security access configuration will allow (a) faculty to run reports only on their own data; (b) designated individuals (i.e., Department Heads, Unit Leaders, and Mays Digital Measures Contact staff) the ability to run reports for their respective departments or units; (c) College level administrators to run data for everyone at Mays.
Yes, faculty and academic administrators can run standard reports or use ad-hoc reporting to select exact data elements (and date ranges) of interest. Department and Unit heads can also decide whether to include all of their faculty or only data for certain faculty members. Reports are built in real-time using all data entered as of that instant.
Yes, we have published several video tutorials for using Digital Measures. Please see Faculty Resources below for additional information.
The Department of Finance used the Digital Measures workflow feature to pilot test the annual performance review process in Spring 2018 for the 2017 calendar year. We will implement annual performance process for all departments in Fall 2018 for evaluations for the 2018 calendar year.
