Action Based on myData Feedback Survey
Earlier this year, as part of a strategy to better understand your overall satisfaction with myData, the Office of Academic Personnel distributed a survey to users of the database system. Many of you took the time to provide information, and we thank you. We have published results from the survey, which we invite you to review.
The majority of users who responded are not in favor of continuing use of myData to complete their Review Profile. As a result, the Review Profile is no longer mandatory for an academic review.
Effective immediately, there will be two options when preparing an academic review case:
- Word version of the Review Profile (AP-10, Addendum)
- myData will be available until June 2018 for those who want to continue to use it
- Central support will no longer be available for data entry.
- Support will continue for user questions and issues.
Course information will continue to be automatically populated into myData from the Registrar’s Office. Faculty who choose to prepare an AP-10 will need to generate a Review Profile report and copy the information to the form. We are also developing a resource to capture course information without accessing myData.
Beginning Fall 2018, myData will no longer be available to our users.
Although the system will no longer be available, the campus will still retain all of the data that has been entered into the system. The Office of Academic Personnel is working closely with the Office of Information Technology (OIT) to provide a way for faculty to access their data online in a variety of formats after the system is discontinued on June 30, 2018. In the meantime, faculty who would like access to their data can continue to download reports from the system or send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of their data. In the event that the campus decides on adopting a new system, the data from myData will be transferred and reused.
