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.
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.
