In this course you will learn about EQuIP (Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products). EQuIP is a collaborative of the American Diploma Project (ADP) Network states. These states are focused on increasing the supply of quality instructional materials that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and available for instruction in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms.

Dana Breitweiser and Thomas Coy are the Arkansas literacy and math leads, respectively, for this collaborative work. Ms. Breitweiser and Mr. Coy introduce the work of the EQuIP team including the Tri-State Rubric. Ms. Breitweiser examines all components of the Tri-State Quality Review Rubric for English Language Arts and demonstrates how districts may utilize this tool. 

April 11, 2013 UPDATE: The Tri-State Rubric has been updated and final versions of the EQuIP ELA/Literacy Rubric for grades 3-12, electronic response form, and the K-2 ELA Tri-State Rubric (Version 5) are now posted for use with the training. When viewing the training, you will notice some changes from the previous version to the current version of each subject-specific rubric. These changes, however, should not diminish the overall effectiveness of the online training. If you are currently using an older version of the rubric, you should replace that version with the most current rubric available. The latest versions of the EQuIP ELA/Literacy Rubric for grades 3-12, electronic response form, and the updated version of the K-2 ELA Tri-State Rubric (Version 5) may be accessed on the Achieve website at http://www.achieve.org/EQuIP.
