Course QM Self-Review

As a member of a subscribing institution, you can use the rubric with the online Self-Review Tool.


This easy to use system allows you to

  • Identify standards met or not met
  • Write evidence of meeting the standard
  • Write suggestions for improvement
  • Share your review with colleagues and mentors.

If you are a seasoned online instructor at Mesa Community College, use the Quality Matters (QM) Self-Review tool tool to refine your online course. Document how your course meets the QM Essential (3pt.) Standards to earn a $350 stipend.
