EQuIP (Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products) is an initiative of the American Diploma Project (ADP) Network designed to identify high-quality materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Achieve is very excited to announce the selection of a new round of EQuIP Peer Review Panel members. Below is a link to the online application portal. Please pass this along to any candidate you think would be qualified and interested.
EQuIP Peer Reviewers have subject matter expertise in designated grade spans and demonstrated ability in making consistent and accurate judgments using the EQuIP rubrics and quality review process. The EQuIP Peer Review Panel configuration ensures that at least three EQuIP Peer Reviewers review each submitted lesson/unit in a given grade band and discipline.
EQuIP Peer Reviewer Commitment
EQuIP Peer Reviewers will commit up to 12 days of service each year of their term, through a combination of in-person and virtual convenings, as well as time spent independently reviewing collections. Each peer reviewer will be required to complete a quality review for a minimum of 10 collections each year and submit written, criterion-based feedback in a timely manner. The EQuIP Peer Reviewer Panel will convene in person twice each year, starting with a mandatory EQuIP Peer Review.
EQuIP Peer Reviewers Application Process
Prospective peer reviewers must complete the application using the online application portal. After completing the application, prospective peer reviewers will receive two demonstration lessons in a specific content area along with the EQuIP Rubric Electronic Feedback Form. Prospective peer reviewers will need to complete an EQuIP Rubric Electronic Feedback Form for each lesson and submit for criterion-based feedback and rating. For panelist consideration, both completed EQuIP Rubric Electronic Feedback Forms must be uploaded to the EQuIP Peer Review Panel application portal by November 8, 2013.
