Online Discussion Rubric:
1. Initial posts are due time-stamped by 11:59pm, Central Time, Wednesday.
2. Two (2) points per day will be deducted for late initial posts, as this has an adverse impact on the quality of the discussion and on the learning community.
3. Posting replies on Thursday and Friday of the week is a good practice; any later than Saturday has an adverse impact on the quality of the learning
community. Posting all or the majority of your replies on the last day of the week will result in decreased points due to the fact that you have not been
effective in participating in the discussion across the week.
