The Quality Matters Rubric is centered on relevant research and was initially developed based on a review of the literature, the expertise of experienced practitioners and existing standard sets. Each of the Specific Rubric Standards is supported by literature from the field. A literature review is conducted for each new Rubric edition that builds upon this core matrix.
