The Using the Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Programs webinar will introduce participants to the scorecard, providing a brief rationale and history of its development, directions for using the interactive scoring method, and uses of the scorecard for internal strategies and external reporting and benchmarking.

In light of increasing calls for accountability, and the need for an industry standard with which institutions can measure and report on quality internally and externally, the Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Programs is freely available on the Sloan-C site. The quality scorecard is a rubric for measuring the quality of the administration of online programs; it was developed by Dr. Kaye Shelton in a series of Delphi surveys with seasoned online administrators from Sloan-C institutions with an average of 9 years experience. Summarized in an effective practice [1], and detailed in a JALN article [2], the scorecard is viewable at In this webinar, Dr. Kaye Shelton will introduce the interactive scorecard as a tool for measuring and improving quality with 70 weighted indicators in 9 categories.
