General Guidelines
Organize your thoughts prior to composing your responses, and proofread your responses prior to submission.
Use polite, professional language in all posts.
Contribute meaningful, relevant, substantive replies to peers. Your professor can deduct points if replies to peers supply only the following types of content: reflection (simply repeating or rewording what someone else has already said); deflection (asking questions of others without offering any of your own thoughts or ideas); affirmation and/or adulation (agreeing with someone, or offering praise or encouragement alone, while making no clear effort to meaningfully further the academic discussion with ideas/opinions of your own). All substantive replies count, whether it be replies to several different classmates, or multiple replies (as part of an ongoing conversation) within a single discussion thread.
Use proper MLA-style formatting and citations if quoting/paraphrasing ideas or information from other sources. Proper sources include the literature itself, online learning resources provided to you in class, and relevant sources from GMC Library; please avoid the use of any and all other outside sources in discussion forums (unless directed otherwise by your professor). Plagiarism or any other form of academic dishonesty, on any post, will result in no credit for the forum assignment, as well as potential referral to the school’s Honor Council. For more information on MLA style, please visit the “How-To Guide: MLA Formatting and Citations” page linked in class.
Grading Rubric Guidelines
Timeliness assesses the timeliness of your first post (main response) to the discussion forum prompt. To earn full credit, you must post your response to the prompt on or before the first-post due date for each forum:
The Discussion Forum first-post due date is typically Wednesday, by 11:55 p.m. EST. This is the due date for your FIRST post (your main response), not all posts. The first post replying to forum instructions can be submitted late, but receives a points penalty after Wednesday (see grading rubric below).
All discussion forum posts (main responses, and replies to peers) for all weekly discussion forum activities must be posted by Sunday night at 11:55 p.m. each week. No posts made after that weekly deadline will receive credit.
The specific due dates for your first posts in the discussion forums can be found on the course calendar, course schedule, the News and Announcement forums, or in the actual discussion forum post directions themselves. If you have any questions, contact your instructor at the appropriate email address found in the syllabus.
Engagement assesses the number of days you were active in each of the weekly discussion forums. To earn full credit, you must contribute to EACH weekly discussion forum over the course of at least two or more days (consecutive, or non-consecutive) during an active course week.
Interaction assesses the quality and quantity of your replies to peers. To earn full credit, you must supply at least two meaningful, relevant, substantive replies to peers in addition to the main post responding directly to prompt instructions (3 or more posts total).
Content measures your ability to effectively address content requirements for your main response. To earn full credit, your main response must be at least 150 words or more, and the content of your first post needs to accurately and completely address all stated content requirements.
Mechanics, Tone, and Style measures your ability to communicate effectively and professionally. To earn full credit your contributions must be written in a polite, professional manner and avoid major or pervasive grammatical, spelling, or punctuation errors. In addition, any necessary MLA documentation (quotations, in-text citations, works cited) should be used effectively.
Discussion forum participation will be graded using the following criteria:
0 points
1 point
2 points
4 points
Main response absent, or posted after stated first-post deadline
N/A – no points are available for this criterion
N/A – no points are available for this criterion

N/A- no points are available for this criterion
Main response content is substantive, but fails to specifically or correctly address some aspect of content instructions

N/A- no points are available for this criterion
Posts contain minor or infrequent errors in tone, grammar/mechanics, or MLA-style documentation
