Discussion Post Recap

On February 26, 2020, in Information, by lwaddell

There seems to be some issues with the discussion post on how points are earned for the discussion post. You need to make a total of three posts on two separate days. Many are only doing one post, or making three on the same day. Posting on the same day, does not lead to a discussion.

Here is the rubric, if you have questions let me know.

Discussion Posts are graded using the following rubric.

5 Points
One post was submitted relevant to discussion topics.

10 Points
Response and one reply made to the discussion OR two replies were submitted on two different days relevant to discussion topics.

15 Points
Response made to the discussion question and two replies were submitted on two different days relevant to discussion topics.
