UF + Quality Matters Course Designations

The University of Florida Quality Assurance Committee has developed standards for online course quality. The standards provide a framework for the development, self-review, and peer review of online courses. The standards are regularly updated to reflect changes and improvements in online education. In 2018, the UF Standards and Markers of Excellence (UFSME) underwent a major transformation to become the UF+Quality Matters (QM) rubric (Canvas login required to access the .docx, .xlsx and .pdf versions of the rubric).
