Faculty - Data Entry


Starting January 2024, “Elements” is the annual review reporting system. Whether teaching courses, conducting research, or leading engagement or Extension activities, faculty will report in Elements for the calendar year (01 Jan 2023 – 31 Dec 2023).

Annual Activity Review

The first task for faculty is to review and/or enter data for 01 Jan 2023 to 31 Dec 2023.

This screenshot highlights the four pillars used for reviewing/entering data for Annual Activity Reviews --- Grants, Learning & teaching, Scholarly & Creative works, and Service.

Grants – Each month, Purdue’s Sponsored Programs Service (SPS) data are uploaded into Elements. Faculty need to check these data for accuracy. Faculty may also manually add any other funding.
Learning & teaching – When semester records are completed, Purdue’s course data and course evaluation data are uploaded into Elements.
Scholarly & creative works – Every two weeks, publications are harvested using several publicly available sources. College of Agriculture harvesting sources include CiNii EN, CiNii JP, PubMed, Scopus, SSRN, and Web of Science (Lite). Faculty may “Claim” or “Reject” publications. They may also manually add any other scholarly and creative works.
Service – At any time, faculty may manually enter service data (e.g., Department, College/School, University, professional, public).

Scholarship Type

Most screens in Elements include “Scholarship Type” where faculty may identify one PRIMARY scholarship type, and any number of SECONDARY scholarship types. The “Scholarship Type” section looks like this:
