Discussion Board Assignment Instructions and Grading Rubric

Assignment Rationale:

Please refer to the course syllabus to determine what percentage the Discussion Board assignments are of your final grade for this course. The purpose of the discussion board is to allow each student an opportunity to communicate their opinions, findings, expertise, and knowledge about various course topics to fellow students and to course faculty.

Assignment Learning Objective:

Each Discussion Board assignment will be related to a specific learning objective. The advantage of the asynchronous discussion board is that it allows time for in-depth reflection, giving each student more time to reflect, research, and compose their thoughts before participation. Please refer to the Assignments chart located within each week to locate the relevant learning objective.

Assignment Instructions:

1. This asynchronous Discussion Board assignment should be viewed as the alternative to an in-class discussion. For the assignment to be worthwhile, each student will need to participate much like they would in a face-to-face environment. Since it is a participation exercise, no late submissions will be considered for credit.

2. Each student is required to create an original contribution (also called a post or posting) in response to the prompt or question being asked in the discussion board. In addition to this initial posting, responses to two other classmates’ threads (postings) are required (a total of three posts required for each discussion board assignment). To earn full credit for the assignment, the three required postings must be made on three different days.

3. The three required posts must be made before the assignment deadline to earn credit and all three required posts must be made before the work will be graded. In other words, posting just one or two contributions equals zero credit for the assignment.

4. Please read the grading rubrics for details but engagement, the use of proper formatting, current, valid references, and timeliness are all important.

5. Responding to a classmate’s post requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon posts to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced in the initial posts. As such, reply posts that merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous post(s) and fail to make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion will receive appropriate point deductions.

6. To complete the assignment, create one initial posting and two peer response postings, using well-constructed, thoughtful, organized writing for each assigned Discussion Board assignment.

7. The initial posting, answering the question(s), will be due on Sunday at 11 pm, CST; the two peer response postings, providing commentary to two different classmates, will be due on or before Tuesday at 11 pm. (See course calendar for specific weekly due dates.)
