Abstract

Many rubrics have been developed to help teachers evaluate the quality of Open Educational Resources (OER). This study examines the utility of different rubrics based on teachers’ perception and use. In particular, five pre-service teachers evaluated twenty OER using the quality indicators contained in four published rubrics. The teachers were also asked to rate their perception of the utility of these indicators and rubrics. Results showed wide disparity in teachers’ levels of agreement when applying different quality indicators in the rubrics, suggesting that certain quality indicators and rubrics better facilitated evaluation than others. In contrast, teachers uniformly reported positive attitudes about the utility of quality indicators in all four rubrics, expressing the belief that these rubrics could help them in evaluating resources for classroom use.
