>more about discussion grading

>A student asked about missing some discussion points. Here is my reply. Other students missed points for the same reasons.

Discussions 2
Privacy and Personal Information
– Additional points were awarded if your initial post started a discussion. No one replied to your question, probably because it was posted so close to the deadline. [after 10pm Sunday night]

You are expected to participate in the course throughout the week. Discussions are the primary learning activity and only work if students post and reply throughout the week.

Discussion 3
Wikipedia and Trust
– Your posting was Incomplete – There is no mention of having looked at the history or the discussion associated with the Wikipedia article you posted. The activity required that you describe your further investigation of how Wikipedia articles are written so that you would understand that there is more oversight, editing and review of Wikipedia articles than many people realize.
