Peer Review Process
• Sometimes teaching an online course
can feel isolating.
• How do we know if our course is
effective?
• How do we make changes to our
course to make it even better for our
students?
• Sometimes we just need a fresh pair of
eyes.

•
Team of three (3) reviewers
•
One score per standard based on majority
•
Assigned point value; not sliding scale
To Meet Expectations…
A course must:
• Rate “Yes” on all 14 of the 3-point
“essential” standards.
• Earn minimum 68 out of 80 points
68/80 = 85%
The QM process is…
• Not about an individual instructor
– It’s about the course
• Not about faculty evaluation
– It’s about course quality
• Not about “winners” and “losers”
– It’s about continuous
improvement in a supportive
environment
Remember...
• Continuous quality improvement is
our goal.
• This is a learning process for us all.
• We’re “constructing” and helping to
determine what “quality matters.”
