Why should I choose a Template + Content Review?
For courses designed using a template that crosses subject areas, a QM-managed Template + Content Review provides a cost-effective way to review courses in two phases. Phase 1 focuses on Standards associated with the template. They are marked with a “T” in the list of Standards for relevant Rubrics. Phase 2 focuses on the Standards associated with course content (marked with a “C” in the list of Standards for relevant Rubrics) and combines with the Template Review score for an overall Full Review score. A Template + Content Review may lead to QM Certification for the courses reviewed.

How do courses become recertified?
Depending on the type of course that was certified, QM Certification is valid for three to five years. Recertification allows you to extend the original QM Certification for a course in a cost-effective manner for up to three more years. In some cases, courses need to be recertified before the standard three to five year period has expired.
