This paper describes the development of a review rubric for learning resources in the context of the Instructional Architect (IA), a web-based authoring tool.

Analysis of usability and reliability indicates that the review rubric influences how teachers design online learning resources.

However, research results have been unclear. This paper examines how the three target outcomes of PBL were measured in 33 empirical studies. Results indicate that few studies included 1) theoretical frameworks for the assessed variables and constructs, 2) rationales for how chosen assessments matched the constructs measured, or 3) other information required for readers to assess the validity of authors ...
