Doctoral Profile and Feedback System Instruction for Administrators
The Doctoral Feedback and Profile System is a flexible, student and faculty-friendly engine for collecting and reviewing doctoral students’ activities related to degree progress, such as research and teaching activities, publications, professional development, awards and more. This easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain system gives students and their faculty committee members an all-in-one platform for conducting annual reviews of students’ progress toward degree in a way that is transparent and instructive for students.
To implement the Doctoral Student Feedback and Profile System campus-wide, we are asking for the support of administrators. The Interfolio-based system, already in use by colleges, departments, and programs, has been adapted for use in reviewing and profiling doctoral students, helping clarify for students where they stand in their progress toward their degree as well as giving them a tool to input activities and experiences related to their academic goals. For departments and programs, the system will enable greater data collection, helping you identify the strengths of your programs and discovering where students may be running into obstacles impeding their progress.
Administrators have the highest level of access. They can access documents, email doctoral students and committees, and move cases forward or backward. Administrators are the only users who can create templates, forms, and cases for the units to which they have access.
