Does not meet expectation
Weeks 1 -7 (15 points)
Your contributions to each Topic indicate your mastery of the materials assigned.
Your responses build on the ideas of another participant (or more) and dig deeper into assignment questions or issues.
You have meaningful interaction with other participants' postings.
You will receive little credit in the week's discussion by just showing up and making trivial comments, without adding any new thought to the discussion.
Your responses might integrate multiple views and/or show value as a seed for reflection for other participants' responses to the thread.
When you make intelligent posts during the week, including some good critique of the course material, then you have demonstrated you have an understanding of the material, are reading posts of your colleagues, and are contributing to the class.
Posts that state I agree or I disagree include an explanation of what is disagreed or agreed upon and why, or introduce an argument that adds to the discussion.
At the low end of the spectrum, no participation gets a "0."
You provide evidence that you are reading the assigned materials and other student postings and are responding accordingly, bringing out interesting interpretations.
Your posts demonstrate confidence with the materials, but may be just a bit off target in one area or another.
However, you may have rambling, lengthy posts that show no sign of having been re-read and refined before posting, and your writing suffers lack of clarity and comprehension.
If you are not in the discussion, you do not earn any points.
You know the facts and are able to analyze them and handle conceptual ideas.
You post on at least three different days in EACH thread topic
You post on at least two different days in EACH thread topic, or posted on three days in one topic.
