News & Updates

Changes for the 2022-2023 Cycle

  • Units that have performance objectives will notice that the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) plan item now includes a Target field.
    • The target is the benchmark, value, or result that will represent success at achieving a performance objective.
    • In previous cycles, this information was included in the KPI itself. Separating the KPI and target will help ensure that targets are not overlooked. 
    • The Target field will appear when the 2022-2023 cycle opens. This field will appear for all cycles, but it does not need to be filled in for 2021-2022. If your unit is still making changes to the 2021-2022 plan, this field can be ignored for that plan year. 
  • To prevent having two cycles open at once, we are moving the cycle closing date from the beginning of October to September 15. 
    • The new cycle will open 1-2 business days later. 
    • A complete list of deadlines can be found on the Anthology Planning webpage.
  • As always, if you have questions or need assistance with your assessment efforts, please contact us at assessment@shsu.edu.
