Quality Matters Program
QM Rubric Information
Overview and Introduction to the QM Program (Powerpoint)
WNMU joined QM in Fall, 2012.
Instructors at institutions which join Quality Matters are never directed or told to meet standards in their courses. It is a voluntary process. An institution which has participated actively with QM for three-five years will usually have about 15 percent of their courses QM approved.
QM is a peer-review model. Faculty at institutions volunteer to be trained in using the rubric when reviewing a course. As of now, WNMU doesn't have a certified reviewer or trainer, so we are simply using the rubric as a "target" for creating and offering quality courses as defined by this national standard.
