Q-Index

UPDATE 10 January 2014:


The annual update of the Qr-index assessment window has been implemented.  All research indicators are now based on performance data from 2008 to 2013 plus 2014 year-to-date, updated daily from eSpace, Research Master, and SI-net.

The benchmark scores have been recalculated based on the dataset as at 31 December 2013.

Overview

Q-index provides each UQ academic with an individual composite index of research and teaching performance over a rolling 6-year window plus the current year to date, e.g., 2005-2010 + 2011 year to date.  Research data is drawn nightly from eSpace, Research Master, and SI-net; teaching data is updated at the end of each semester.  

Each staff member can see details of how their individual index has been calculated based upon the best available data, as well as a comparison against an average of their peers.

Information on the methodology, the weightings and the normalisation as well as how to navigate around the Q-index system are provided in the help page.
