Rating Comments
C1. The online course design includes activities that guide learners toward promoting ownership of their learning and self-monitoring. Fully Met
C2. The online course’s content and learning activities promote the achievement of the stated learning objectives or competencies. Partially Met Partially met. The criterion description of "engagement" includes class discussions. Each unit includes 2 discussion assignments. The Intro to Discussion Board assignment specifies that students should post and respond to at least 2 peers. This expectation is not made clear for the subsequent discussion assignments.
C3. The online course is organized by units and lessons that fall into a logical sequence. Fully Met
C4. The online course content is appropriate to the reading level of the intended learners.* Fully Met "The Flesch-Kincaid Grade level was in the range of 13-14 for a portion of the text from unit 1, which would be 12 grade to college level, or difficult to read. This would likely be an upper-level or honors class, so maybe this is appropriate. There does appear to be scaffolding and new terms are defined within the text."
C5. The online course design includes introductory assignments or activities to engage learners within the first week of the course. Fully Met All Michigan Virtual students complete the Student Orientation to Online Learning module, containing introductory lessons and four assessments, prior to beginning their other coursework. Additionally, all courses include as their first activity an introductory discussion board as an opportunity to engage with the instructor and other classmates.
C6. The online course provides learners with multiple learning paths as appropriate, based on learner needs, that engage learners in a variety of ways. Fully Met
C7. The online course provides regular opportunities for learner-learner interaction. Partially Met "It is unclear whether there is an expectation for interactive discussion board posts. Responding to 2 peers is mentioned in the first discussion instructions, but it is not mentioned in any of the subsequent discussion board assignments. No collaborative assignments."
C8. The online course design provides opportunities for learner-instructor interaction, including opportunities for regular feedback about learner progress.* Fully Met
C9. Online course instructional materials and resources present content in an effective, engaging, and appropriate manner.* Fully Met "This is from the Unit 1 Activity Instructions: ""Considering Culture--Anthropologists study culture, so let’s see what that actually looks like."" If this counts as a narrative, I would say the standard is met. This is from the Unit 2 Activity Instructions: ""Thinking Ahead--If evolution has taught us anything, it is that everything changes...Choose at least five elements of humans that you think will be the next evolutionary change."" The unit 3 objectives are duplicates of the unit 1 objectives, so the Activity narrative doesn't align, but there is still a narrative that still corresponds to the unit. The same is true of unit 4 (wrong objectives, but the Activity narrative aligns with the content of the unit. Units 4-10 are steps in writing a research paper. Each activity includes a narrative that corresponds to the objectives of its unit."
Rating Comments
D1. Learner assessments are linked to stated course, unit, or lesson-level objectives or competencies. Partially Met "The unit 3 objectives don't seem to match the content covered in the unit 3 quiz. Unit 2 and unit 4 cover different content but have identical objectives."
D2. Valid course assessments measure learner progress toward mastery of content. Fully Met
D3. Assessment practices provide routine and varied opportunities for self-monitoring and reflection of learning.* Fully Met
D4. Assessment materials provide the learner with the flexibility to demonstrate mastery in a variety of ways.* Fully Met
D5. Rubrics that clearly define expectations for varied levels of proficiency are created and shared with learners.* Not Met "Unit 3 is about culture, and the unit 3 Activity rubric evaluates students on a culture-focused activity, but the unit 3 objectives are identical to the unit 1 objectives. Unit 4 is about culture, and the unit 4 Activity rubric evaluates students on a culture-focused activity, but the unit 4 objectives are identical to the unit 2 objectives. Many of the Activity rubrics are very general, but these might be fine when applied to particular assignments. Instructors give specific feedback when a point on a rubric is not met, and this should be adequate.Unit 3 has the wrong objectives (they belong to unit 1), but they almost seem to correspond to unit 3 Critical Thinking Questions (there is no Lab in unit 3). Unit 4 objectives are about evolution (and they shouldn't be since unit 2 is about evolution), so they don't align with the Critical Thinking Questions or the Lab. Unit 8 is about family and the objectives align with the various assessments, except for the Lab, which focuses on Egyptian mummification. I can't find any lesson in unit 8 that references mummification. Seems out of place."

E1. Online course navigation is logical, consistent, and efficient from the learner’s point of view.* Fully Met
E2. The online course design facilitates readability.* Fully Met
E3. The online course provides accessible course materials and activities to meet the needs of diverse learners.* Partially Met "I found a table in 8.01 that appears to be an image on the page, rather than an interactive table. Did not see alternative means to multimedia. "
E4. Course multimedia facilitate ease of use.* Not Met The unit navigation and content viewability is limited when viewed in full screen. I am able to scroll through the pages, but I can only view the content on the upper half of my screen. The lower half is not populated.
E5. Vendor accessibility statements are provided for all technologies required in the course.* Fully Met

F1. Educational tools ensure learner privacy and maintain confidentiality of learner information in accordance with local, state, and national laws for learner data. Fully Met Student data within Michigan Virtual's learning management system are password-protected and require single sign-on from a secure student information system in full compliance with FERPA requirements.
F2. The online course tools support the learning objectives or competencies.* Partially Met Partially met. Several of the mentioned tools are built into the course, but there is not necessarily a statement with them: "Clear information and instructions are provided regarding how the tools support the learning objectives."
F3. The online course provides options for the instructor to adapt learning activities to accommodate learners’ needs and preferences.* Partially Met Instructor role permissions within Michigan Virtual's learning management system permit instructors to add supplemental content and external resources both within lessons and announcements. Additionally, the learning management system permits online accommodations including text-to-speech tools, extended testing time, provision of multiple attempts, and scoring exemptions for extenuating circumstances. Course content is desgined, however, to meet state and national content standards alignment and provide a guaranteed and viable curriculum to all enrolled learners, and therefore there are restrictions on instructor permissions to modify the scope and sequence of course assessments.
F4. The course allows instructors to control the release of content.* Partially Met Michigan Virtual provides for flexible pacing and asynchronous delivery of its online course offerings. In order to maximize these opportunities for personalized learner preferences and flexibility concerning frequency or timing of individual learner availability or participation in courses during academic terms, with few exceptions, all course content is made available at all times throughout the term, and generally only midterm or final exams are password protected. Conditional release of content is intentionally avoided or used sparingly within Michigan Virtual course design and instructional delivery models.
F5. The course provides the necessary technical functionality to score and record assessments and calculate earned course points or grades.* Fully Met Michigan Virtual ensures that the gradebook items are pre-populated in its course offerings, and the association of grade items with individual assessments, and the inclusion of grade categories, progress check calculations, and total point scoring established prior to the enrollment of learners.
