Desk Tracker for Instruction Statistics

user-pic
Vote 0 Votes
In February, we began to offer the option to use Desk Tracker (you still have the option
of using the User Ed Stats). When you log into Desk Tracker you should
see a tab labeled "Instruction." Use this tab to collect information on
your workshops, tours, orientations, and course-integrated instruction
sessions. The purpose of this form is to collect information about the
session. If there are multiple instructors be sure to only enter the
session once. For more information go to:
https://wiki.lib.umn.edu/AP/DeskTrackerInstructionFAQ .

Here are some of the statistics we have collected from February 1, 2010
to March 12, 2010:

Type of Sessions:
Course Integrated: 43
General/non-course specific: 23
Orientation/Tour: 1
Other: 1

Total Number of Sessions: 68

Total Attendees: 1445
*What if I have already entered statistics from this semester into User
Ed Stats?*
You do NOT need to re-enter your stats into Desk Tracker. For spring
2010, we will support both systems for data collection, you can either
continue to use User ed Stats or start using Desk Tracker for your
instructional sessions this semester. Starting Summer 2010, we will be
moving exclusively to Desk Tracker to collect instructional statistics.

*Where can I get help?*
If you have any log-in questions contact Kate Peterson (katep@umn.edu).
The Instruction Coordinators
<https://wiki.lib.umn.edu/AP/InstructionCoordinatorsGroup> and
Information Literacy Collaborative
<https://wiki.lib.umn.edu/AP/InformationLiteracy> members can also be of
assistance with questions on entering data.
