Students will receive a participation grade for each half of the course equal to 5% of their final grade.
Rubric for evaluation of class participation. The focus is on meaningful participation and not just adding entries to the Conferences section.
Frequency - Theoretically possible to enter the online classroom once a week and receive a decent grade. The reality is that frequent participation each week puts the student in a much better position to make timely and meaningful contributions.
Benchmark is that eight meaningful posts to the classroom each week would be an A, six meaningful posts would be a B, and four would be a C.
Note that simply posting a short “me too” comment is not considered a “meaningful” post and will not support a strong grade for the week.
