Mr. Voloshin noted that at the March 21–22, 2013, meeting the full Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) delegated authority to the MSMC to approve additional applicants for Instructional Materials Reviewers (IMR) and Content Review (CRE) experts for the 2014 Mathematics Instructional Materials Primary Adoption.
