You can grade forums much like an Assignment. This allows you to review all of a student’s posts in a single page and assign a grade. Depending on your grading methods, this might be helpful in calculating participation grades.

  1. When setting up a Forum, select a grading type (Point or Scale) from the Whole forum grading section.
Selecting a grade method for Whole Forum Grading.

2. Once you select grading type, you can set things like the maximum grade and what category the grade falls under (see Gradebook Setup for details on setting grade categories). Click Save and Display at the bottom of the page when you are finished with your Forum settings.

3. When you are ready to grade a Forum, click on the Forum and click the Grade users button.

4. On the left side of the screen, you will see a list of a student’s posts for that forum. On the right side, you will see a way to scroll between students in the class and a place to enter the grade. Be sure to click Save button to make sure grades are recorded in the Gradebook before you click Close.
