Online Discussion Rubric

Marybeth Alley, author and educator, has kindly shared her pared down version of a discussion forum rubric.

I know there are a number of professors who use rubrics to help them grade more subjective assignments like discussion forum participation. These rubrics also help students to better know the expectations set for them. My wife, Marybeth Alley, created an online discussion forum rubric that I thought some might like to use or modify for their own courses. With her permission I am posting this for anyone to use or to modify.
