Is this Membership right for you?

Look to empower your staff to use QM review tools to improve their own courses and evaluate third-party courses, and possibly to conduct collaborative course reviews. Using the QM K-12 Rubrics, everyone in your organization can start to review courses and modify them to meet QM Standards. Organizations can also leverage QM tools and discounts on professional development to engage faculty and staff in evaluating the quality of the courses they design or purchase.
