QM Research

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.

Take a look at what we're learning from QM-focused research.
