My organization is interested in being able to report on who has participated in a discussion. However, the instructors do not want the discussions to be graded discussions.
Would it be possible to start a discussion as non-graded, gather responses, then at a later time switch the settings to "graded" so that we can look in the Gradebook to see who participated and who didn't? And maybe switch back again later?
Are there any warnings/pitfalls to this process?
