OSCQR Webinar Series

OSCQR evaluation is the next step for your course after EPTO. OSCQR will help your online course design reach a national level of quality and improve student success.

Why is it Critical That You Know OSCQR?

As part of CCRI's Online Learning Policy, the effectiveness and quality of online courses should be evaluated regularly.  In addition, as a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), CCRI has committed to abide by a set of shared guidelines for course quality and accessibility. Online course quality is closely regulated by both the Federal Department of Education and NECHE, especially in the area of "regular substantive interactions." We are also required to be compliant with all accessibility legislation, both federal and state.

The OSCQR rubric meets all of the above legislation, regulation and accreditation standards. The OSCQR rubric does not evaluate the instructor but the instructional design and organization of the course, as well as the employ of research-based effective instructional practices. OSCQR is designed as a reflective process in which the instructor and instructional designer work closely together to outline improvements to online course design. Learn more about how the OSCQR rubric was developed.
