    Key sections that must align…
  • Rubric Scoring
    • Team of 3 reviewers initially score individually
    • One score per standard based on team majority
    • Pre-assigned point value
    • Yes/No decision; All/None points
    • Consensus is NOT required
  • For QM Purposes, Quality Is…
    More than average; more than “good enough”
    An attempt to capture what’s expected in an effective online course at about an 85% level
    Based on research and widely accepted standards
    85 %
  • To Meet Expectations…
    A course must achieve:
    “Yes” on all 17 of the 3-point “essential” standards.
    A minimum of 72 out of 85 points
    72/85 = 85%
