Quality Matters promotes a peer review process and provides a database of trained QM Peer Reviewers eligible for assignment to a peer review team. Any subscribing institution may conduct internal or informal reviews or contract with Quality Matters to conduct an official review. Official subscriber-managed course reviews may be conducted only by eligible subscribers. Courses that successfully meet the QM rubric standards in an official (subscriber-managed or QM-managed) course review are eligible for QM recognition.
