Departmental Curriculum Profile

This dashboard integrates data from across the suite of Curriculum dashboards available in Cal Answers. Intended for use by Deans, Department Chairs, and the managers and staff that support them, this dashboard can assist departments with curriculum management as well as academic planning. It portrays curriculum-related metrics for each academic department in a highly graphical format to promote usability and improve accessibility. Trend reports provide a high-level overview of the department's curricular offerings and teaching resources, useful for academic assessment and planning. Semester detail reports allow units to identify opportunities or address issues related to curriculum management.
