Discussion Forum Scoring Guide
Participation in discussion forums includes an initial response to the discussion forum prompt provided by the professor and responding to a minimum of two other classmates’ responses per discussion forum. Discussion forums are based on readings for the course and are designed to begin the conversation about the course content for the week. They prepare students for the activities and assignments for the week, so it is crucial for the class that they are completed during the week they are assigned. For this reason, students will not receive credit for discussion forums that are completed late for any reason. When you complete your forums late, not only are you not prepared for class that week, but you are impacting how prepared your fellow classmates are as well. If you choose to put your forums off until the last minute and an emergency arises, an extension will not be granted. All discussion forums for the week are due on Saturday evenings at midnight EST.
