Different teams of 3-5 reviewers are allocated an instructional series grounded on their knowledge with the materials to be reviewed. A lead reviewer is designated from every team to streamline weekly calls with other teammates.


Reviewers utilise the EdReports.org assessment tool individually to review instructional or resources materials, gather evidence and decide ratings. After all reviewers have rated resources, the main reviewer assembles the team to debate on their findings.

Stage Three

All reviewers meet every week to talk about the ratings and evidence. Every team must reach agreement on the overall rating.

Stage Four

Finally, right after teams reach over a consensus on rating, the lead reviewer of every team shares the ratings and evidence with each other during weekly calibration meeting. Lead reviewers inspect the sign and ratings to check to ensure the evaluation tool's standards is being applied reliably amid review teams.
