Digital Measures (a.k.a. Faculty Success from Watermark) at GVSU

Login to Digital Measures/Faculty Success

Digital Measures (DM), now branded as Faculty Success (by the Watermark company), is a web-based information management system designed to organize, store and report on faculty teaching, research, and service activities. It provides one place for a faculty member to keep information about his/her performance current. Digital Measures eliminates the need to frequently ask you for details about your teaching, research, and service accomplishments in order to prepare numerous reports required by accrediting agencies, the news media, and various university offices. University administrators (e.g. Chairs, Program Directors, Deans, etc) will be able to use DM to produce many of these reports. You will only need to enter information once and it will be available for many purposes. The DM allows you to manage information about your performance.  It can produce the following reports as Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF or HTML documents.

  • Faculty Activities
  • Personnel Actions
  • Workload
  • Vita

The bottom line for everyone involved is DM will save time by reducing the burden of paperwork associated with reporting. All faculty members are required to use DM.  We strongly encourage you to enter your entire curriculum vitae (CV) because the DM is easy to use. Once your CV is in the DM you are expected to keep your information current. In order to save you time, we up-load information from Banner on your behalf.  Some of those fields are read-only, so if the information is incorrect, please email the correct information to your college's DM Liaison. You are also welcome to contact the DM Campus Coordinator.
