One individual
Fully annotated HE, K-12, or CPE Rubric
QM Rubric workbook
Discounts on professional development
Discounts on conferences
Free QM IDA Membership
Free QM “Success Stories” webinars
MyQM tools and QA resources
$195/yr for one Rubric

Is this Membership right for you?

If your organization is not a current QM member, you can still access QM tools and resources through an Individual Membership. As an individual member, you can select the Higher Education, K-12, or Continuing & Professional Education Rubric, and begin using the QM Rubric and Self-Review Tool to evaluate and improve the quality of your courses and meet QM Standards. Individuals who see the value in using QM tools to improve their courses and believe that all faculty and staff should have access to the QM Rubric — as well as the Course Review Management System —can encourage their organization to sign up for a membership.

What your Membership includes

  • A fully annotated, web-based QM Rubric that shows you what to look for when evaluating your courses
  • A QM Rubric Standards for Course Design Workbook for the Rubric you selected (Higher Ed, K-12 or CPE)
  • Access to the Self Review tool in the Course Review Management System for reviewing  your own courses
  • Access to the Course Review Management System for QM and/or Subscriber-Managed reviews.
  • Discounts on conferences and professional development
  • QM IDA Membership, which connects instructional designers to resources that support their QM process
  • The QM Research Library helps you create quality assurance
  • Exclusive QM Success Stories webinars from other Members

How to make the most of your Membership

  • Define your quality assurance goals for course improvement
  • Review QM Research resources
  • Consider your professional development needs for learning to use the QM Rubric and improving courses
  • Identify courses that you want to review

Become part of a community that believes quality matters

Once you become a QM member, you can connect to a community of QM experts who will provide you with ongoing support. While you cannot share the Annotated QM Rubric with others, you can spread the word about your QA efforts and accomplishments within your own organization. This will help you build greater support for implementing a quality assurance process and creating a culture of continuous improvement.
