QLTlogo
The CSU Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT) evaluation instruments are designed to help support and identify exemplary practices for the design and delivery of online, blended, and flipped courses. Each instrument is composed of 57 items across 10 sections, including a new optional section on “Mobile Platform Readiness.” There is a formative rubric score given at the end of each section, as well as a summative score and rubric at the end of the instrument. The following instruments on this page are used for informal course reviews. If interested in formal course reviews leading toward certification of fully online courses, see the formal course review process page.

Those interested in performing a self rating of their course can use the informal review version of the CSU QLT Instructor Self-Rating.

We are not responsible for maintaining a database or providing results on demand.
