Reporting Effort


This article provides instructions on how to report effort on an activity. UC OATS calculates the time in hours rather than days. As a faculty member, you should report up to a maximum of 8 hours any day you engage in a Category I or Category II activity. For traditional or hybrid in-person instructional formats (lectures, discussions), every 6 contact or "podium" hours spent with students equals 1 day.

  • 1 Day = 8 Hours
  • 1 Day = 6 Podium Hours - traditional or hybrid in-person instructional formats (lectures, discussions)

To report effort:

  1. Locate the activity in your workspace, then click the "Report Effort" button.

  2. Fill out the effort form.

    Please Note: 
    • Faculty under APM 240/246 policy must report renumeration type, amount, and vacation hours. (see image below)

  3. Click the "Report" button to save the effort. The time threshold bar will automatically adjust to include the reported effort.
