Assessing Topics



  1. Assigning an Assessment Method to a Topic


  1. Click on Discussions on the Main Navigation Bar.

  2. Click on Discussions List.

  3. Click on the arrow next to the name of the Topic and select Edit Topic.



  1. Click on the Assessment tab on the top of the Edit Topic page.



  1. Select the assessment method you want to use:

    1. Associate the discussion Topic with a Grade Item.

    2. Assign a score to the Discussion Topic.

    3. Add a rubric.

    4. Assess user’s Topic score by selecting a calculation method:

      1. Average post score: Averages all of the post scores included per student.

      2. Maximum post score: Identifies the highest score of all the post scores included per student.

      3. Minimum post score: Identifies the lowest score of all the post scores included per student.

      4. Mode post score - Highest on multiple: Looks at the frequency of scores on posts, then selects the highest occurrence of a score per student. Once it picks the frequency, the system looks to see if multiple scores occur at that frequency. If not, it assigns that score to the user. If there are multiple scores with the same frequency, it will choose the highest of those scores. For example, if a score of 7 occurs 2 times, a score of 8 occurs 3 times, and a score of 9 occurs 3 times, the system will choose the frequency 3 and the score of 9.

      5. Mode post score - Lowest on multiple: Looks at the frequency of scores on posts, then selects the highest occurrence of a score per student. Once it picks the frequency, the system looks to see if multiple scores occur at that frequency. If not, it assigns that score to the user. If there are multiple scores with the same frequency, it will choose the lowest of those scores. For example, if a score of 7 occurs 2 times, a score of 8 occurs 3 times, and a score of 9 occurs 3 times, the system will choose the frequency 3 and the score of 8.
