Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v39 n2 p163-172 2010-2011
Grading discussions for quality and participation has been an area studied by researchers as the growth of online and distance learning has become a foundational component in academic environments. Research regarding assessment for online discussions has been in favor of employing and communicating specific rubrics for participation, as well as content and quality of postings supported by instructor feedback.

Through the discussion process, arguments and solutions change. (Contains 1 table.)
