Attach a Discussion Forum to an Assessment in the Gradebook

  • Create a Gradebook assessment.

  • Click the checkbox beside Attach a course discussion to this assessment for grading.

    • The checkbox is below the area where you define the assessment characteristic, marking scheme and grading scale.

  • From the Select a Discussion to Grade dropdown menu, select one or more forums that you want to associate with the assessment.

    • If you select more than one forum, your grader(s) will be able to switch between forums to access the learners posts and replies for each.

  • Assign your learners to Assessment Graders as required.

  • Optionally, attach an Assessment Form to assist your graders in grading the discussion forum.

  • Optionally, create an Assignment Dropbox for the assessment, if the learner is also required to make a submission.

  • Click Save.
