Report: The Collection and Use of Research Metrics for Assessment and Evaluation
University of Manitoba
The Joint Committee on Metrics was struck at the request of the University of Manitoba and the University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) during collective bargaining in 2016. The purpose of the committee was to decide whether the language proposed in the Letter of Understanding (known as Appendix H1 and found at the end of this report) should be included in the Collective Agreement. The report outlines nine principles of agreement and several recommendations with respect to the applicability of research metrics in evaluative processes.
