This article presents a Quality Checklist for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) education. The Checklist is a tool for teachers and educational developers in RCR education containing the results of eleven reviews on the impact of RCR education. It makes these data accessible in a layered way, such that users can quickly find the information that they are interested in. The tool can complement the Predictive Modeling Tool, which allows users to fill out information about a course and provides recommendations on how the course’s efficacy can be improved. We present our approach to developing the Quality Checklist prototype tool, the tool itself and how it can be used. We compare it to the PMT and discuss the added value of the Quality Checklist prototype tool, as well as its limitations. Finally, we indicate some of the ways in which the prototype tool could be further improved.
