What is the QM Peer Review?

Quality Matters is a widely recognized, standards-based approach to course quality assurance in online learning. Courses that receive a strong designation from QM can help boost the quality of the overall Health Science program at your university and the resumes of students who go on to pursue careers in the field.

Here’s how the QM Peer Review process typically works:

  • Standards-based: The review is grounded in a research-supported rubric developed by Quality Matters. This rubric includes specific standards that courses must meet to be considered high quality. The standards cover areas like course design, learning objectives, instructional materials, learner interaction, and assessment practices.
  • Peer review team: A course undergoing a QM Peer Review is evaluated by a team of trained and certified peer reviewers who are experienced online educators. This team usually consists of three members, including one who serves as the team chair.
  • Faculty-centered: The process is collaborative and constructive, focusing on course improvement. It is non-punitive and designed to support faculty in enhancing their online courses.
  • Feedback and reporting: The review team provides detailed feedback on each standard in the rubric, noting strengths and areas for improvement. If the course meets the necessary quality standards, it may be recognized with a Quality Matters certification mark. If not, faculty can use the feedback to make improvements and resubmit the course for review.
  • Continuous improvement: The ultimate goal of the QM Peer Review is to foster a culture of continuous improvement in online education, ensuring that courses are engaging, effective, and designed to promote learner success.

This rigorous process is highly respected in the field of online education, helping institutions and instructors improve the quality of their educational offerings. By doing this, institutions of higher education that provide online courses as part of their curriculum can be assured that those courses meet consistent quality benchmarks.
