2022 Summer Review Institute Applications

The Instructional Material Bureau (IMB) is now accepting applications for the 2022 Summer Review Institute.  Core instructional materials for grades K-12 Social Studies and Arts will be reviewed June 8-24, 2022.  We are looking for reviewers and review team leaders who are committed to helping the IMB and NMPED identify high-quality instructional materials for the students and teachers of New Mexico.  The reviews are used to determine whether the submitted instructional materials are adopted or not adopted by the state. 

A description of each review institute position with the application link is below.

Reviewer of Record application:  The reviewer’s primary responsibility is to unbiasedly review materials and provide evidence for alignment with standards and criteria for high quality using rubrics developed by a team of content area experts and the IMB. Reviewers are also required to work with a review team leader to ensure understanding of the standards and authentic results; meet scheduled deadlines for completing the review; attend daily check-ins on progress toward final scores; and collaborate with another reviewer and a review team leader to author an evidence-based appraisal of reviewed materials. 
Review Team Leader application:  The review team leader’s primary responsibility is to unbiasedly review materials and provide evidence for alignment with standards and criteria for high quality using rubrics developed by a team of content area experts and the IMB. Review team leaders are expected to be highly knowledgeable in their content area and be able to provide content and standards support throughout the review to their review team. They are required to work with a team of two other reviewers to ensure understanding of the standards and authentic results; meet scheduled deadlines for completing the review; schedule and facilitate daily check-ins on progress toward final scores; attend daily check-ins with their facilitator; ensure the review team provides evidence that is valid; and lead reviewers toward an evidence-based appraisal of reviewed materials.
