QM Internal Review Process at LSSC

To demonstrate our commitment to excellence, LSSC has developed an Internal Review Process to ensure quality for online courses. This review process uses the QM Rubric and guidelines for quality courses. By participating in this QM Internal Review, you are delivering on the promise to nurture your learners through well-conceived, well-designed, and well-presented courses.
If you are interested in submitting your course for internal review, please submit a helpdesk request with your name and course number to helpdesk@lssc.edu. You will then be enrolled in a Canvas Course entitled "Online Quality Assurance Review" that include the following steps:
  1. Step 1: Become QM Certified - In this step, you will attend a face-to-face session for the QM course "Applying the QM Rubric" that is taught by a faculty mentor.
  2. Step 2: Self-Review Your Course* - In this step, you will use the QM Course Review Management System (CRMS) to self-review your course.
  3. Step 3: Complete Application - In this step, you will submit your course along with course documents. You will also complete the QM Course Worksheet.
  4. Step 4: Internal Review - In this step, the internal review committee will review your course to ensure QM standards are met using QM guidelines. 
*LSSC's QM Membership provides access to the fully annotated QM Rubric and the QM Course Review Management System (CRMS).
