Peer Review Scoring Form

Peer Review Scoring Form

August 2016 - This link was updated. Since traditional faculty peer review forms are no longer sufficient for reviewing on-line courses, this scoring form for the companion peer review rubric should be helpful to faculty needing support. The rubric itself is for faculty to use to develop or to peer review on-line courses. It can be found at It was initially compiled through the Web-Initiative-in-Teaching project (1998-2002) sponsored by the 13 campuses of the University System of Maryland and was later refined through a national Delphi technique (McMahon lead). Participants in the Delphi study are listed at Marj Ashcraft re-organized and researched the documentation for the rubric which is 14 pages long but is detailed in its list of supportive references and descriptions of each rubric category. Our Delphi process recommended this one page scoring form to simplify the recording of the peer review data. Reviewers have found both instruments helpful in developing high quality on-line courses. Others find that the concept is generating serious debate on their campuses regarding promotion, tenure, and merit issues for those faculty teaching on-line courses. Special thanks to Drs. Steven Lesh and Mohammed Tabrizi for their perseverance and extensive review of the material in each Delphi round.
