Module 2: Checklists and Rubrics for Evaluating OER

There are many rubrics and evaluation tools available that you can use or adapt when you're ready to start evaluating the OER material you've found. It may be valuable to develop a common evaluation tool at the departmental level to ensure that OER adoption aligns with the department's mission and goals.

The file on the next page was adapted by librarians here at Texas State to more closely align to our campus needs. It may serve your needs on its own, or you may use it as a starting point to develop your own evaluation rubric. Don't forget your attribution!

Over the next few pages, you will find some questions and tips to consider as you evaluate the appropriateness of an OER to your needs.

At the end of this section, you'll have the option to download a checklist to help you evaluate the OER you're considering for your students
