Quality Content Rubric


 Organization

 
  • Learning Objectives: Objectives are clearly articulated. It is clear what the collections' intended audience should know and be able to do as a result of studying the collection.
  • Quantity of Resources: There are enough resources to accomplish the collection objective. Every resource has a role and a purpose.
  • Resource Sequence: Progression through collection flows in a logical manner, and resources take intended audience from a general to more complex level of understanding.
  • Narration: Narration is present for the majority of resources (where needed) and provides useful context/information/direction. The narration is clear and easy to follow.


Content

 
  • Educational Value: All resources in the collection contain informative content and provide educational value
  • Engagement: All resources in the collection are engaging. Collection includes a wide variety of resource types (webpages, texts, videos, questions, etc.) that allow students to learn key concepts and demonstrate understanding in multiple ways.
  • Assessment: Collection contains a variety of questions and/or other resources that assess student understanding of stated objectives
  • Accuracy: All resources are from reliable/credible sources
  • Outdated Content: The collection resources do not contain any information that is obviously out of date. Pluto is no longer considered a planet.


Mechanics and Functionality

 
  • Proofreading Errors: Collection text added by the author is free of spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors.
  • Resources Functionality: Has correct and functioning link to all documents, webpages, videos, etc.
