Weekly Discussion Rubric


Assessment guide


(10 pts)

The postings exceed discussion and peer response requirements. Although a single posting is required, the student may post multiple entries. Each posting is the improved programming solution. Each considers a different work and offers insight and thoughtful analysis; it does not simply summarize. Or produce same result and it contains no errors.

Above Average

(8 pts)

The posting slightly exceeds discussion and peer response requirements. The posting is 100 words in length and offers insight and thoughtful analysis of a chapter.

Meets Expectations

(6 pts)

The posting meets discussion and peer response requirements. It is 75 words in length and offers a response with some analysis. It may contain multiple errors.

Below Requirements

(4 pts)

The posting is slightly below peer response requirements. The posting is less than 75 words in length and offers little analysis and/or contains multiple minor errors.

Lacking Effort

(2 pts)

The posting falls considerably short of peer response requirements. It is less than 75 words and offers little other than a summary of a reading and/or contains multiple major grammatical and/or sentence structure errors.


(0 pts)

The posting does not meet minimal expectations and contains multiple major grammatical and/or sentence structure errors.

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
ONLINE NOTE: An attendance report of "P" (present) will be recorded for students who have logged in to the Online classroom at least once during each week of the term. Recording of attendance is not equivalent to participation. Participation grades will be assigned by each instructor according to the criteria in the Grading Policy section of the syllabus.
