Rubrics & Standards

What are the expectations and qualifications for serving on the QM Higher Education Rubric Committee?
QM Members serving on the Rubric Revision Committee for the Sixth Edition of the QM Higher Education Course Design Rubric Standards need to be experienced with the Fifth Edition Rubric as described on this page. Committee members volunteer a significant amount of time and effort that benefits the entire QM Community.

To which course formats can QM Rubrics be applied?
See specific definitions of what constitutes an online, blended or face-to-face format and how the QM Rubrics can be applied to each.

How does the QM Rubric differ from the iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Courses?
While the Quality Matters K-12 Secondary and K-12 Publisher Rubrics have, since their inception, been aligned with the iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Courses, there are some distinct differences.

How can I make QM Rubric Standards available to my post-secondary or graduate students?
You can bring QM into the classroom with QM for Students, a supplemental subscription. If you’ve been wanting to incorporate QM Standards into curricula and courses for Instructional Design, or any other program, this supplemental subscription may provide the solution.
