Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products
Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products (EQuIP) is a collaborative of ADP Network states that 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.
Using a common definition of quality, EQuIP teams are learning how to use tools and processes to review the quality of materials (tasks, lesson, units, modules) that states will contribute for the purpose of receiving critical feedback for improvement. State teams are also learning how to take the Quality Review tools, training, and processes back to their states to replicate the Quality Review process and increase the capacity of their teachers and districts to identify quality instructional materials. Read here for more about EQuIP.
In addition, some participating states may focus on determining the quality of Open Educational Resources (OER) and developing policies that govern their use.

We are very excited to announce the launch of the EQuIP Jury. Below you will find an EQuIP Juror Application.
Through this application process, Achieve hopes to select up to 72 jurors. Selected jurors will have subject matter expertise in designated grade spans and will be able to demonstrate the ability to make consistent and accurate judgments using the EQuIP rubrics and quality review process.
The following videos include footage from the EQuIP convenings and provide more information about the benefits of EQuIP. The first video focuses on the ELA/Literacy rubric and the second video focuses on the Mathematics rubric:
