Faculty Data Reporting & Analytics
The ODS-FDRA team coordinates the university's efforts for collecting and reporting Faculty related data, including but not limited to state submissions, federal submissions, benchmark surveys related to salary and cost of instruction, FAIR, Faculty Information System (FIS), Academic Analytics, Banner Workflow.
The best way to contact the team is to send an email to FacultyHelp@usf.edu.
You can find the current access link and useful information on the UCO Third Party Payments Website.
The Faculty Academic Information Reporting (FAIR) system consist of modules for the collection of information about faculty and instructional staff. This information is then used for mandatory effort reporting, annual evaluations, and much more. FAIR is available through your MyUSF portal under Business Systems -> FAIR.
FAIR also houses the Student Evaluations Mart – where student assessment of instruction data is stored.
The FIS lives on the Archivum platform at USF. This new system houses our Tenure & Promotion, Annual Evaluation, and Annual Assignments modules for Faculty. This system will eventually replace FAIR. You can access FIS through your MyUSF portal under Business Systems -> Archivum.
Institutional Effectiveness and Planning
The ODS-IEP team helps manage risks and improve educational quality by coordinating the university's quality assurance efforts and ensuring compliance with regulations relating to academic programs, student support services, and research-based institution-wide planning.
Assessment is a subunit of Institutional Effectiveness that ensures the ongoing collection, review, and documentation of continuous quality improvement assessments for all academic programs and student services units as mandated by our regional accreditor, SACSCOC, and the Florida Board of Governors.
Academic program review is the seven-year cyclic review of all degree programs in FL SUS institutions.
The Florida Education and Training Placement Information Program (FETPIP) is a data collection and consumer reporting system to provide data on former students and program participants who have graduated, exited, or completed a public education or training program within the state of Florida. Please submit the appropriate form on the Data Requests page to request FETPIP data.
Accreditation is a quality assurance process in which educational institutions, health care organizations, and other providers of services demonstrate compliance with published standards of quality. In the United States, post-secondary educational institutions must be accredited by an accrediting body that is approved by the U.S. Education Department to be eligible to award federally-funded financial aid to students (e.g., many grants, scholarships, loans, and payments for work-study jobs). Most post-secondary institutions in the southeastern portion of the United States are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). SACSCOC accreditation resources are available on the ODS Accreditation page. In addition to institutional accreditation, which assures the quality of USF as a whole, over 100 academic programs at USF have specialized (or programmatic) accreditation, which assures that those programs comply with published standards that have been developed by experts in each particular academic discipline.
Institutional Research & Analytics
The ODS-IRA team provides system-wide support by providing comprehensive information about the University of South Florida. Our goal is to collect, analyze and disseminate data for use in institutional planning, policy development, governmental reporting and strategic decision-making processes.
Please submit the appropriate form on the Data Requests page. Requests will be reviewed on a recurring basis. Upon receipt of the request, a research professional will contact you via email or telephone to discuss your request further. Completion of requests will vary depending on scope and breadth of the research topic. It is advisable to complete the form with as much detail as possible in order to help expedite your request. Please be sure to review the data publicly available on the USF InfoCenter.
Dates can be reviewed on the ODS Institutional Research and Analysis Annual Calendar.
The Web Reporting System (WRS) team creates and maintains a comprehensive, variety of reports, derived primarily from Banner (Student Information System). All reports are categorized by units, e.g., Admissions, Registrar, UGS, COPH, USFSP and Veterans Services. Report access is limited by roles in order to ensure data is secure and confidential. All report requests are done on a first come, first served basis.
As part of the recent USF Banner 9 upgrade process, access to the WRS system has been modified to require a separate "netid_RPT" account. If you have not yet requested an "_RPT" account, you must email both USF IT at HelpDeskIT@usf.edu and ODS at WRSRequest@usf.edu to request the creation of your account. USF IT will email you your new account and password when completed, and ODS will add this access to the WRS system.
