Graduate program review: Student productivity and outcomes

Graduate degree programs undergo an extensive review every 10 years. While the Graduate School provides much of the data that program faculty discuss in the program self-study, the department itself must provide some of the required data.

Digital Measures is an excellent tool to accumulate and later retrieve student and faculty performance data. In this video you will learn how to indicate which publications, conference presentations, grants and patents include student collaborators. You can track the honors, awards, and professional outcomes of the students in your program.

At this time, Digital Measures licensure has not been extended to graduate students. For that reason, it’s necessary that faculty track these data points. In most cases, it’s only a click beyond the records you would create for your own profile.

The process for publications, conference presentations, grants and patents is identical. All of these data entry screens may be found in the Scholarship/Research/Creativity section of Digital Measures.

  1. When you add a new item, you will add the names of all contributors to the record.
  2. Although the student’s name will not self-populate from the “People at Oregon State University” field, you can add them as you would a contributor from another institution.
  3. Indicate each contributor’s role, and then indicate the student’s level.
  4. Note that each publication record created by the import function in Digital Measures requires a manual update to track student contributors.

Track honors, awards, and professional outcomes of your graduate students in the Student Committees screen, found in the Teaching section of Digital Measures. Use the text box to enter this information.

All of these items are required for the review process.
