Course Review Process

Online Course Reviews


Quality Matters Logo


The Southern University and A&M College Campus QM Plan includes the regular and systematic review of online courses for quality assurance and continuous improvement.   


Online courses are reviewed for compliance with established standards. The dates for course reviews are announced  in advance of the reviews.  The assigned CPR reviews each course using the Course Review Checklist, which is aligned with  the Quality Matters Rubric, 6th Edition.  The completed Course Review Checklist is made available to the respective college dean, and faculty member. Courses deemed "not met" may request a subsequent review using the Online Course Review Request Form

Request a Course Review

To foster continuous improvement of online courses, faculty may request an online course review.  Course reviews are conducted by campus peer reviewers who are experienced online instructors and are QM Certified Peer Reviewers.

Reviews may be requested for:

  • a newly developed course
  • a course deemed "unmet"
  • a periodic course improvement
