I know that discussion is a meant to be a public forum for discussion. I was wondering if there is a similar idea of discussion where all students answer the same question but can not see each others responses. Something that would time stamp when they responded and were able to see their old responses.
I am looking for students to answer questions over the course of a year, "how was your weekend?" along with some other simple questions, that can lead to students revealing personal information that I would rather not be public knowledge. This would let me read a students personal thread and be able to give simple participation grades.
