Discussion Expectations: For every discussion board forum (question) in each unit, at least three different posts (a minimum of one initial posting and two replies) must be submitted. These posts must be submitted on three different days per unit.

For example, if a given unit contains three forums, you must respond to each forum (at least once) on three different days. So, if you made a post on the three forums on three different days of the unit, for that given unit, you would have submitted nine posts. You must participate in EACH forum on three different days. For example, you may choose to post in DB 1.1, DB 1.2 and DB 1.3 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to meet the minimum expectations.

All initial postings in response to the discussion forum (question) must have no fewer than 300 words, while replies must contain a minimum of 100 words. Both original postings and replies must include in-text references (APA-formatted citations).

Failure to meet the above minimum criteria will result in an F.

You must begin posting in discussion board forums no later than Wednesday at 11:59pm EST of each unit. If initial postings are entered after this time, 15 points will be deducted. Inappropriate language that lacks suitable context will not be tolerated. Text message shorthand is not appropriate.

The instructor makes the final decision about all discussion board grades.

*Note: Per University Policy, any postings entered into discussion board threads after the close of a given unit will not be counted toward weekly expected contributions. Postings that have not been entered into discussion boards during a given unit cannot be made up at a later date.

In addition to the above criteria, the expectations noted below specify outline the desired weekly discussion board grades that must be adhered to, WITHIN EACH DISCUSSION BOARD FORUM, in order to earn all possible points. You will receive a separate grade for each forum.

Points will be deducted when all criteria for a particular grade are not met.
