Some learning management systems include discussion forums with mandatory student participation. But how do instructors keep track of student discussion contributions? How are contributions graded–organically or with certain criteria?
It all depends on the instructor. Often grading student participation in discussion forums can be a hassle. However, some learning management systems contain grading tools that allow instructors to evaluate student discussion participation based on their own criteria.
Discussion board scoring rubrics allow for efficient management of large discussions and hundreds of posts on a learning management system. Rubric monitors can be used to determine scores based on criteria such as frequency of posts and replies, the number of replies a student’s post generates from other students, and peer ranking averages.
