Quality Matters at USI
Quality Matters (QM) is a faculty-centered, nationally recognized, peer review process that is designed to certify the quality of online courses and online components.
QM Review Process
In an official QM course review, the goal is to provide specific feedback that can be used to improve the course and lead to an improved experience for the learner. After completion of the course, the course is then reviewed by a team of three QM-Certified Peer Reviewers using the QM Rubric. Please view the QM Review Process homepage for more information.
