Know Moore About: Responsible Metrics
New

Thu 26 Mar 2020

Description

Metrics have long been used as an indicator of academic success and as a way to make key decisions. As the measurement of impact becomes increasingly important within academia there has been something of a backlash against trusting purely quantitative methods of assessment. The Responsible Metrics movement aims to ensure that metrics are used fairly alongside other measures to gather a true assessment of impact. This session will discuss what the Responsible Metrics movement is, why it was developed, its importance and how research staff can get involved.

  • All STEMM students
