Discussion Rubric: Graduate
Your active participation in the discussion forums is essential to your overall success this term. Discussion questions are designed to help you make meaningful
connections between the course content and the larger concepts and goals of the course. These discussions offer you the opportunity to express your own
thoughts, ask questions for clarification, and gain insight from your classmates’ responses and instructor’s guidance.
Requirements for Discussion Board Assignments
Students are required to post one initial post and to follow up with at least two response posts for each discussion board assignment.
For your initial post (1), you must do the following:
 Compose a post of one to two paragraphs.
 In Module One, complete the initial post by Thursday at 11:59 p.m.
Eastern Time.
 In Modules Two through Ten, complete the initial post by Thursday at
11:59 p.m. of your local time zone.
 Take into consideration material such as course content and other
