I love the idea of allowing students to anonymously post and reply in Discussions and am looking forward to that release in BETA. However, I'm not thrilled with the idea that I can't have graded discussions in anonymous mode. Many high school students won't do the work if they're not "rewarded" with a grade, so I'm wondering why graded discussions wouldn't have this functionality. In SpeedGrader, we would still have the student posts associated with their user profile, so teachers can still grade the posts.
Thanks so much!
