Faculty180 Release Notes - 04/27/2018

New Grants status: 'Withdrawn'

While Faculty users or administrators conducting a bulk data load, then they should be able to choose a status of "Withdrawn". This status operates the same as other statuses with respect to data loads, reports, and vita output.

This status is a "terminating status" make sure that this new status works in reports, vita, etc.

Introducing Interfolio Account Merge

In order to remain compliant with local standards, this feature is not available to Faculty180 users that are on a Canada-based Faculty180 server, if you have questions about this reach out to your Institutional Administrator at your Canadian institution.

If you have two interfolio accounts, you now have the ability to merge your accounts to unify all of your materials and deliveries. More information is available at the guide explaining the feature.

In short:

  • Users with more than one Interfolio account can merge their account through the account settings.
  • Using this tool, users will be able to type in their sets of login information to confirm their account ownership for both accounts.
  • All data, emails, documents, credentials, and associations will be merged. The source account being the primary.
  • All F180 accounts that attempt to merge will have to go through a waiting period while the accounts are manually merged. This expedites the previous process of having to contact help first.

Coming Soon in an Upcoming Release

Upcoming Changes to the AACSB Reports

Note:

New report formats will be inaddition to the previous versions/editions (2013) within Faculty180.

We offer three reports that help clients satisfy accreditation reporting requirements for AACSB, the business school trade group.

In order to offer the most up to date offering of the AACSB reports, here is some more information about the versions of the Faculty180 Reports

In the Upcoming Table 2-1 (2017)

Table 2-1:

  • Changed "Academic/Professional Meeting Proceedings" to "Peer-Reviewed Academic/Professional Meeting Proceedings"
  • Added "Peer-Reviewed Academic/Professional Meeting Presentations"; should be mapped to the client's present subtype
  • Changed "Cases" to "Case Studies"
  • Added "Professional practice standards, or public policy" Activity Classification
  • Added "Percentage of total Full Time Equivalent (FTE) faculty producing "Intellectual Contributions"; the main difference with the previous "percent(age) of faculty producing Intellectual Contributions" column except it treats each of the databases's part-time faculty as "0.5" and each full-time faculty as "1" while calculating.
  • Removed "Monographs" column.

In the Upcoming Table 2-2 (2017)

  • Similar to the display of Table 2-1; Table 2-2 report should be organized by units in the same way as 2-1.
  • Each row is a peer-reviewed journal, not a faculty member.
  • The report contains all journal articles identified with the peer-reviewed Activity Classification (that is, all articles that would be included in table 2-1).
    • Fractional credit for articles:
      • If there are coauthors on a relevant article within the same business school (but different units), then credit for the article should be split equally among the different units
        (e.g., 0.5 for Accounting -> My Journal and 0.5 for Economics -> My Journal).
      • Although to identify coauthors, the submitting user must have added a coauthor at their institution and triggered the coauthor verification workflow.
  • Notes about the drill-down feature:
    • User can drill down into each journal to see the articles within it
    • User can drill down into each total in the "Number of Publications" column to see all the articles within that total.

In the Upcoming Table 15-1 (2017)

Added a new report for Table 15-1 (2017). Same as previous edition, except it now comes with a fabulous new year!

In the Upcoming Table 15-2 (2017)

We've added a new report representing Table 15-2 of the AACSB 2017 accreditation standards.

  • Change header of table (currently "Percent of teaching") to "Faculty percent of teaching by program and degree level."

Calculation of % faculty contributed to a program follows the following rules:

  • Provide information for the most recently completed normal academic year, including all participating and supporting faculty who taught during the year.
  • The percentage of each faculty member's time allocated to each academic program or program level should be a fraction of their total time devoted to teaching. A faculty member who teaches a full course load would allocate 100 percent.
    • For example, a participating faculty member who was assigned six courses during the year, four at the bachelor's level and two at MBA level, would allocate 67 percent to the bachelor's level program and 33 percent to the MBA program.
