Tools & Data Systems

 

Canvas Learning Management System

UTA’s learning management system, Canvas, is open, intuitive, and streamlines digital content and tools for students and instructors to interact with greater engagement. Canvas provides a digital learning environment that meets unique challenges of delivering interactive, innovative, and student-centered content online.

Numerous training materials on getting started in Canvas, using the gradebook, creating and managing rubrics, training videos, creating modules, Canvas to MyMav grade syncing, using Unicheck (plagiarism tool), and more. 

Student training material, updating profiles, help, viewing grades, email instructors, using calendars, submitting assignments, and more. 

Technical Support
 

Civitas Learning

Inspire for Faculty is a powerful addition to UTA’s arsenal, equipping faculty more than ever to be totally engaged with our students. Having up-to-date student engagement data from the Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas, readily available, gives faculty the opportunity to identify students who may be struggling at an early stage.

Digital Measures

UTA Digital Measures (DM) provides a centralized data resource for faculty to collect and organize their teaching, publications, presentations, and service, as well as awards and accomplishments in one centralized location. Faculty can easily display these accomplishments through a variety of reports including annual reviews, promotion and tenure dossiers, and post-tenure review reports. University, college and departmental leadership can also access faculty data easily through UTA Digital Measures for both internal and external reporting purposes, such as accreditation and Unit Effectiveness Process.

Student Feedback Survey

As part of UTA’s efforts toward continually improving the quality of teaching, we have developed the Student Feedback Survey (SFS) program, a campus-wide program that affords students with an opportunity to reflect upon their experience in each organized course (lectures, labs, seminars, and practicum) and offer relevant feedback. 

 

Academic Planning & Policy

 

Curriculum-Related Matters

  • UTA Catalog
    The University of Texas at Arlington Online University Catalog is the official catalog of the University and takes precedence over any previously printed or online catalog. Students are governed by the catalog under which they were enrolled or, at a student’s option, the catalog of any subsequent year in which that student was in residence. Please refer to the academic requirements and procedures sections for more information.

  • UTA Proposal Form for New Academic Programs
    In Spring 2021 UTA updated the process and form to propose new academic programs, including minors, certificates, and degrees—both undergraduate and graduate. All sections of the form should be completed in full and the form should be routed via the process chart for creation of a new academic program.

  • THECB Standards for Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programs
    THECB has specified a set of standards that all new and existing bachelor’s and master’s degree programs should incorporate. Deviation from these standards requires submission of compelling information to justify the deviation.

  • THECB Submission Form for New Bachelor's and Master’s Degree Programs
    Most new bachelor’s and master’s degree program proposals require UT System and THECB review. Most of the information on the THECB Submission Form for New Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Programs is reflected in the UTA Proposal Form for New Academic Programs. After a bachelor’s or master’s degree proposal has secured internal approvals, the THECB form can be prepared for review and submission.

  • THECB Submission Form for New Doctoral Programs
    All new doctoral degree program proposals require UT System and THECB review. Most of the information on the THECB Submission Form for New Doctoral Programs is reflected in the UTA Proposal Form for New Academic Programs. After a doctoral degree proposal has secured internal approvals, the THECB form can be prepared for review and submission.

  • Undergraduate Curriculum and Catalog Changes
    All changes to undergraduate courses and academic programs must be approved at the department/program, college/school, and university levels. Changes are submitted and reviewed through the Courseleaf System.

  • Graduate Curriculum and Catalog Changes
    All changes to graduate degree and certificate programs must be approved by the departmental Graduate Studies Committee, Department Chair and Academic Dean. Changes are submitted and reviewed through the Courseleaf System.

  • Computer Proficiency Petition
    A Computer Proficiency Petition is a request to accept coursework not specified by the major department as evidence of computer proficiency. This is not a waiver of the requirement but an alternative means of exhibiting proficiency.
