The EWU Course Review rubric identifies 20 criteria over five different categories and is used as both a development and evaluation tool. The five key categories in the rubric are: Learner Support & Resources, Online Organization & Design, Instructional Design & Delivery, Assessment & Evaluation of Student Learning, and Innovative Teaching with Technology.
The use of this tool simplifies the review process, making it easy to understand and intuitive to use as a guide to redesign or develop courses with instructional design principles. Applying the rubric to evaluate each criterion will provide clarification on the areas of the course that are highly rated or areas that you might want to address to improve the course delivery. Each criterion will be evaluated as ‘Not Met’, ‘Met’, or ‘Exemplar’ and has a potential value of 5 points with a total of 100 points for the rubric. For a course to receive a ‘Met’ classification, all criteria on the rubric must be marked as ‘Met’ or higher on the rating scale. An Exemplar course status is awarded to courses that total 85 points or higher.
