I setup a discussion board that requires a post before seeing replies. Does this mean that I have to post a reply in order to see the students' replies?
Hello there, Ruth Ann O'Ski Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Although I couldn't find any mention of it in this Guide, How can I require students to reply to a course discussion before they see other replies?, my own testing in my sandbox course leads me to believe that you do not need to post a reply in order to see the replies of your students. I created a new discussion topic in my sandbox course as an instructor with the option "Users must post before seeing replies" selected, and then I logged in as two "dummy" students. I posted a reply as each "dummy" student. When I returned to my own view, I went back to that discussion topic, and I was able to see both replies from the "dummy" students without issue.
I hope this will be of help to you, Ruth Ann. Please let Community members know if you have any questions about this...thanks!
