We're looking to have a discussion be marked complete automatically. We are asking students to share information about themselves, but want to make it required, without having to devote instructional resources to having it "graded", since any participation is acceptable for our purposes. Is there a way to do this?
Currently we've made an additional assignment group that has 0% weight and are putting the discussion there so, while it remains incomplete unless it is graded, it does not negatively impact the students' grades. Is there any other solution? This is terribly clunky and ugly, as solutions go.
