TRR rubrics are developed based on Texas standards, the latest curriculum research, and instructional best practices with contributions from stakeholders across Texas, including:
- Teachers and instructional leaders
- District leaders
- Education organizations
- Education service center staff
- State Board of Education members
Once a rubric is approved, TRR review teams use it to evaluate materials submitted for quality review. Each rubric is customized for a content area and grade band with some commonalities across them all.
The Rubric Development Process
A new rubric is usually developed in response to new standards in a subject area, TEA priorities, or local education needs. TRR is committed to transparency. Rubrics are posted on our website at various points during development and after they are approved.
