What is a well-designed, high-quality course? ASU looks to Quality Matters (QM) as the authority on course quality. QM established a rubric of course quality standards that are research-based and grounded in best practices.
What are the QM quality standards? The QM rubric standards are "the keys to achieving the goals of ensuring quality for learners — and for you to deliver on your promise to them." (qualitymatters.org)
The General Standards of the Quality Matters Rubric are:
- Course Overview and Introduction
- Learning Objectives
- Assessment and Measurement (Assignments)
- Instructional/ Learning Materials
- Learning Activities and Learner Interaction
- Course Technology
- Learner Support
- Accessibility and Usability
Course Quality Review QM Worksheet - The College - Our team created this worksheet to provide instructors and instructional designers with a rubric of the QM standards that are most essential to ASU courses.
ASU Online Faculty Expectations - See the Course Development Checklist for the QM standards that EdPlus has determined are the most essential in o-courses.
By following our four-step process, design, build, review, and teach, your course should meet these quality standards!
