ScholarSteps Pilot

Beginning July 1, 2022, UCI Academic Personnel will be piloting a new online review system, ScholarSteps, which will fully replace AP Review in the 2023-24 review cycle. While AP Review has served us well at UCI, the system will need to be replaced because the technology that it was built on is no longer being supported.

The ScholarSteps 2022-23 pilot is a voluntary opt-in for units who are interested in using the system for some or all of their review files during this next review cycle (please work with your dean’s office to coordinate whether your school will be opting into the pilot). During this transition year, you can choose to run review files in ScholarSteps OR AP Review (files processed in ScholarSteps should not be run in AP Review and vice versa).

For the 2022-23 pilot, ScholarSteps can be used for all senate and non-senate review actions except:

  • Appointments
  • Non-Reappointments
  • Midcareer Appraisals
  • Reviews representing split appointments (split titles or split schools/departments).
  • Reviews for individuals that would require a surrogate Chair, Dean, etc.
