Are instructor views of discussions student- or contribution-specific?

Jump to solution

Old question (answered):

In my discussions, I want my students to respond to my question and then have each student interact with five other (auto-assigned) discussants. My course has 150 students, so I cannot read all contributions.

Is there a way to auto-grade that

1. a student has posted ---AND---

2. s/he has replied to 5 others?

Edit: I just realized that there is no auto-grading of discussions. So I will have to click on each student's discussion to see whether s/he has responded. Disappointing. In a class of 150, that hampers my teaching style since I obviously cannot foster that much interactivity and hand-grade it.

New question:

How will I see whether the individual student also replied to five others' posts? Could someone please share a screenshot?

This is what I anticipate:

1. Each student's contributions are student-specific. I click on a student, see his/her initial post and below that, what else the student has written (to others) --- OR ---

2. Each student's contributions are posting-specific. I click on a student, see his/her initial post and below it, the five responses to that initial post.

It would be:

Jane Smith: Post

   Jane Smith reply to Bill Baker: Post

   Jane Smith reply to Jim Jackson: Post

   Jane Smith reply to Carl Miller: Post

   Jane Smith reply to Suzanne Sterling: Post

   Jane Smith reply to Audrey Hall: Post

So the numbers are not there but it is easy to look and see a student did 1 initial and 5 replies. 

Thanks,

Hello jensenb@ecu.edu‌, I have attached the Canvas document on how to grade discussions that has the screenshots but your anticipation for #1 is correct.  You will see the students' initial post and then everything else they have posted below that.

Hope this helps!

Thank you, Nick.

I gather from this current set-up that I cannot really hold students accountable for replying to a certain number of other posts? I would have to do detective work to find out what student only replied to three other posts (out of the 5 assigned). Or is there a Canvas report available for completion of 5 postings to 5 auto-assigned course participants? What I would like to see (at minimum) is:

Jane Smith: “Hi, I’m Jane and I’m in this course because I have always been interested in German Romanticism.”

Jane Smith replied 5/5 times:

1 – to Bill Baker

1 – to Jim Jackson

1 – to Carl Miller

1 – to Suzanne Sterling

1 – to Audrey Hall

Audrey Hall: “My name is Audrey.”

Audrey Hall replied 1/5 times:

1 – to Carl Miller
