What is the period for which we should enter data?
Fiscal Year 2018–19. If your school uses a calendar-year orientation for your fiscal year, you should enter data for Fiscal Year 2018.
Who can enter data?
Each school’s primary contact is considered the primary data entry contact. The primary contact can designate additional data entry contacts by completing this form. Primary contacts will be asked to indicate which survey(s) each new data entry contact should have access to, since the Salary Survey contains sensitive information.
How do I enter data?
Once you’ve been designated a data entry contact, log in and then click the Access Tool button. Please note: The tool will open in a new tab, so be sure to allow pop-ups. You’ll see a welcome message with instructions, as well as a link to data worksheets for each survey. You can download and use these Excel worksheets to gather data in advance of entering it into the system.
Do we have to complete the data entry all at once?
No. Each data entry contact can log in, enter and save their data, and log out again. All data entered by each data entry contact will be retained by the tool.
Will I need to reenter all of my data each year?
If you’ve entered data for a previous fiscal year, you will be able to pull forward that year's data. Be sure to update any figures as needed.
When will I be able to download comparison reports?
The tool requires you to complete 70% of the overall questions, as well as 100% of the required questions, to view results. If you have yet to meet this percentage, please continue to add your data, then you can access results.
I have more questions. Who should I contact?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Additionally, an ACUI Benchmarking Help Desk will be available at the Annual Conference, where you can view demonstrations and get one-on-one help with entering data, designating data entry contacts, and downloading reports.
