Science Interactive’s Environmental Science Curriculum Receives Quality Matters Certification

The QM certification is awarded for excellence in curriculum design and quality

Published: Wednesday, June 22, 2022 - 11:57

(Newswire: Englewood, CO) -- Science Interactive earns the Quality Matters (QM) Certification for their Environmental Science curriculum following a detailed review process. The QM certification mark is the internationally recognized symbol of online and blended course design quality.

“Developed by our team of in-house Ph.D. scientists, instructional designers, and online education experts, the Environmental Science curriculum is the third discipline in our portfolio to receive the QM certification,” says Tim Loomer, CEO of Science Interactive.

“This certification helps us continue to deliver on our mission to provide quality science curriculum and hands-on learning to all remote students, and we plan to submit additional online courses for Quality Matter’s approval in the near future.”

The QM Official Review provided independent validation of the quality, learner-focused course design found in Science Interactive’s Environmental Science curriculum. Reviews are conducted by QM-certified reviewers and use the Quality Matters rubric and associated standards, which are based on research and best practices. A course earns the QM certification mark once it meets QM rubric standards at the 85 percent threshold or better and meets all essential standards.
