    1. 1. AN INTRODUCTION QUALITY MATTERS Terrie McCallister [email_address]
    2. 2. <ul><li>This chart shows the process a course goes through for Quality Matters. </li></ul>
    3. 3. QUALITY MATTERS RUBRIC <ul><li>Based on National Standards of best practice and research literature </li></ul><ul><li>Designed to promote student learning </li></ul><ul><li>Integral to continuous student learning </li></ul>
    4. 4. RUBRIC SCORING Standards Points Relative Value 17 3 Essential (51) 11 2 Very Important (22) 12 1 Important (12) TOTALS 40 85
    5. 5. FOR OUR PURPOSES, QUALITY IS… <ul><li>More than average; more than “good enough” </li></ul><ul><li>An attempt to capture what’s expected in an effective online course at about an 85% level </li></ul><ul><li>Based on research and widely accepted standards </li></ul>85 %
    6. 6. TO MEET EXPECTATIONS… <ul><li>A course must achieve: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Yes” on all 17 of the 3-point “essential” standards. </li></ul><ul><li>A minimum of 72 out of 85 points </li></ul>72/85 = 85%
    7. 7. WHAT THIS PROCESS IS NOT <ul><li>Not about an individual instructor </li></ul><ul><li>(it’s about the course) </li></ul><ul><li>Not about faculty evaluation </li></ul><ul><li>(it’s about course quality) </li></ul><ul><li>Not about “win/lose” or “pass/fail” </li></ul><ul><li>(it’s about continuous improvement in a supportive environment) </li></ul>
    8. 8. 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
    9. 9. Distinguish Between Design vs. Delivery <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Discussion Board </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>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
    10. 10. <ul><li>Eight standards: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Course Overview and Introduction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning Objectives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assessment and Measurement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resources and Materials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learner Engagement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Course Technology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learner Support </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accessibility </li></ul></ul>The Rubric Key components must align.
    11. 11. Critical course elements work together to ensure that students achieve the desired learning outcomes. What is Alignment?
    12. 12. KEY SECTIONS THAT MUST ALIGN Course Objectives (II) Resources, Materials (IV) & Technology (VI) Assessment and Measurement (III) Learner Engagement & Activities (V)
    13. 13. <ul><li>Let’s Look at the Standards </li></ul><ul><li>Handout essential standards </li></ul><ul><li>Handout on 2, 1 point standards </li></ul><ul><li>Examples in QM Shell </li></ul>
