Online Course Quality Rubrics

There are a number of good rubrics to help you assess the quality of your course. These rubrics can help you define where your course is in relation to where you might want it to be. Your course developer (instructional designer) can assist you in making adjustments and improvements to your course each time you offer it.

For your reference, here are some useful rubrics to start with:

  • Rubric for Online Instruction: from California State University: Chico This rubric is useful in that it offers three levels of practice: Baseline, Effective and Exemplary – which suggests a progression and can be helpful in considering what needs to be done to move to the next level.
  • Quality Matters Rubric: MarylandOnline Inc. (developed under a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Education. The fully annotated version is available to subscribers only, however, the standards are publicly available and provide a useful guideline.
