What is the purpose of the activity assessment?
The activity assessment will be used to analyze the current roles and responsibilities administrators have across your institution and the University System of Georgia. By conducting a review of your daily tasks, the survey looks to capture how administrators across the system are spending their time. Results will be utilized to identify the time and effort you put towards various functions and services in your day-to-day work.
What impact, if any, will this assessment have on my job?
The results of the activity assessment will have no direct impact to your job.
How will the project team use the information from this assessment?
This assessment is used as a tool to identify how institutions differ in service delivery to identify best practices within each sector and within the system. The project team will aggregate the assessment responses and look for broad themes to further review.
Do I have to complete this assessment in one sitting?
No. The assessment will be open until you submit it or until the close date provided in the assessment email announcement. We recognize that this assessment may take a significant amount of time and we want to allow participants ample time to complete the assessment to ensure a quality response.
What if I want to come back to the survey later or change my response later?
The survey link will remain open until the close date communicated in the assessment announcement email; your survey will not be finalized until you click “submit survey.” Therefore, you may save your responses and come back to the survey by clicking your original link at any point until you either click submit or the set deadline is reached.
What if I cannot remember everything I do throughout the year?
That’s ok – the assessment is trying to capture your activities throughout the year to the best of your ability. We recognize this is a challenge as certain activities often have different levels of importance throughout the year. We recommend that you spend time reflecting on your annual duties before you begin the survey. Sometime using prompts like a calendar can help jog your memory as to what you spend time on during the year.
Why is my supervisor reviewing my assessment responses?
To validate submissions, your supervisor will review their direct reports’ responses. This will have no relation to employee performance or annual evaluations; rather, it will ensure a second set of eyes can review responses before submitting them to the CAR project team for further evaluation.
Why is the activity assessment mandatory?
Institutional leadership has made this assessment mandatory so that the CAR project team can get a comprehensive view of activity within the organization. Since every institution within the University System of Georgia will be taking this assessment, we are working to get a holistic view of administrative activities within your institution and the University System.
I am having technical difficulties or accidentally submitted my assessment, who do I contact?
Please reach out to the project team (http://www.usg.edu/adminreview/contact) and detail what technical issues you are experiencing. We will reach out to you as soon as possible.
