Using discussions and grading rubrics

Discussions can be used for “assignment submissions” and peer reviews. Additional points can be given for content, such as results from an online search assignment, as well as for discussion participation. This is a great way to extend student-student interaction and discover new online resources.

Here are several discussion forum grading rubrics. Some are very explicit in the form of the posts. Points and criteria will vary depending on the subject matter, grade level and learning objectives for the discussion.
