Measure the quality of blended learning programs

The OLC Quality Scorecard for Blended Learning Programs 

provides benchmarks and quality standards to help you evaluate your blended and hybrid learning programs. 

By using the scorecard, faculty, administrators and instructional designers can determine the strengths and weaknesses of those programs.  Institutions can use the scorecard to identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement within their own programs and create a strategy for meeting benchmarks. 

Institutions can pursue a third-party, independent program review through the OLC Quality Scorecard Endorsement. Those that achieve exemplary status may be eligible to display an OLC Exemplary Program logo on their website.

The Quality Scorecard Navigator is our premium service which brings OLC experts to your institution to perform an expert analysis for you, guided by your input.


This quality scorecard was developed through a collaborative effort with experienced educators recognized for their background in this modality. They identified quality metrics for each of the 70 indicators in key categories, including: Institutional Support, Technology Support, Course Development and Instructional Design. Course Structure, Teaching and Learning, Faculty Support, Student Support, and Evaluation and Assessment.


An Interactive Version is available for OLC Institutional Members.  It serves as an online, collaborative dashboard and repository to assess, enhance and measure the effectiveness of your programs online. Become an OLC Institutional Member.

A free version of the Administration of Blended Learning Programs is also available to download.



"The Quality Scorecard is grounded in research, best practices, and expert opinion, so I know the University is well-served by implementing the self-assessment process and demonstrating our continuous improvement processes and outcomes to accreditors."
