Discussion Guidelines

If you met the above-mentioned requirements, you will be graded at the proficient level.  However, if your desire is to be graded at the exemplary level, please provide more than what is required.  To receive 100% as a grade (the exemplary level) for the weekly discussions, you should ensure that your responses meet the following criterion:

Critical Analysis – Discussion postings display an excellent understanding of the required readings and underlying concepts including correct use of terminology. Postings integrate an outside resource, or relevant research, to support important points. Well-edited quotes are cited appropriately.  No more than 10% of the posting is a direct quotation. ( It is important that you integrate the weekly readings in your response.  One way to do that is to make position statements, then add citations to support and validate your position.  A key focus is your ability to present your position in your own words, which is why no more than 10% of the post should be a direct quote.  Paraphrasing is the best alternative ). APA citations are not required. However, if you use an outside source, make reference in some manner to that source just as you would in a verbal conversation.

Participation as a Member of the Learning Community – Discussion postings actively stimulate and sustain further discussion by building on peers’  responses including building a focused argument around a specific issue or asking a new related question or making an oppositional statement supported by personal experience or related research.
