iCPALMS App: Resource Reviewer
The Resource reviewer app is where the reviewers poll, review, and provide feedback on the Resources that were submitted to CPALMS. This app is an extension of a complex review system that ensures Resources travel to the appropriate reviewers yet keeps the flexibility for the reviewer to decide when to review and when not to. The entire Resource review system and process are designed to provide a rich professional development experience for both the reviewer and the submitter allowing both groups to build the best quality Resource. There are more than 600 trained reviewers that contribute to this rigorous review process.
Please note that this app is only available for trained reviewers. All reviewers go through training prior to reviewing Resources and using this app. We are always looking for volunteer reviewers to join this elite group of educators and subject area experts.
