Start Using the Sixth Edition to Meet Course Design Standards

Did you know that courses are 42% more likely to meet Standards in the first review when they are pre-reviewed with an internal review process such as a Preparatory Review or Self Review? QM higher education members can access the newest edition of the QM Higher Education Rubric in the CRMS and test it out with a Self-Review. And anyone can enroll in the APPQMR or IYOC to put the research into practice and learn how to use the Standards to improve courses. Not a member yet? Check out the list of Specific Review Standards and see if QM Membershipis right for you!
