Critical Analysis

Postings are largely personal opinions or feelings, or "I agree" or "Great idea", without supporting  statements with concepts from the readings, outside resources, relevant research, or specific real-life application.

Discussion postings repeat and summarize basic, correct information, but do not link readings to outside references, relevant research and do not consider alternative perspectives or connections between ideas. Sources are not cited.

Discussion postings display an understanding of the required readings and underlying concepts including correct use of terminology and proper citation.

 * Open class discussion is an important and significant part of an online course. While class discussion whether online or face to face, can be characterized by free flowing conversation, there are identifiable characteristics that distinguish exemplary contributions to class discussion from those of lesser quality.  The criteria found on the rubric above will be used to assess the quality of your initial postings and responses to the postings and comments of peers during class discussion.  Note: Initial postings are your comments based on the discussion prompt posted by the instructor. Responses to others are your replies to your peers' initial postings.
