  • AN INTRODUCTION QUALITY MATTERS Terrie McCallister [email_address]
    • This chart shows the process a course goes through for Quality Matters.
  • QUALITY MATTERS RUBRIC
    • Based on National Standards of best practice and research literature
    • Designed to promote student learning
    • Integral to continuous student learning
  • RUBRIC SCORING Standards Points Relative Value 17 3 Essential (51) 11 2 Very Important (22) 12 1 Important (12) TOTALS 40 85
  • FOR OUR 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%
  • WHAT THIS PROCESS IS NOT
    • Not about an individual instructor
    • (it’s about the course)
    • Not about faculty evaluation
    • (it’s about course quality)
    • Not about “win/lose” or “pass/fail”
    • (it’s about continuous improvement in a supportive environment)
  • The faculty member is integral to both design and delivery . Course Design … is the forethought and planning that a faculty member puts into the course. Course Delivery … is the actual teaching of the course, the implementation of the design. QM is about DESIGN - not delivery or faculty performance
  • Distinguish Between Design vs. Delivery
          • Example: Discussion Board
    Design: A discussion board has been planned into the course; students have been told how they should participate and how they can expect the faculty to participate Delivery: How often the faculty member actually participates in the discussion; what the faculty member actually says to students
    • Eight standards:
      • Course Overview and Introduction
      • Learning Objectives
      • Assessment and Measurement
      • Resources and Materials
      • Learner Engagement
      • Course Technology
      • Learner Support
      • Accessibility
    The Rubric Key components must align.
  • Critical course elements work together to ensure that students achieve the desired learning outcomes. What is Alignment?
  • KEY SECTIONS THAT MUST ALIGN Course Objectives (II) Resources, Materials (IV) & Technology (VI) Assessment and Measurement (III) Learner Engagement & Activities (V)
    • Let’s Look at the Standards
    • Handout essential standards
    • Handout on 2, 1 point standards
    • Examples in QM Shell
