The Forum activity allows you to 'rate' individual forum discussion posts. These ratings are added to Grades for the purposes of summative and formative assessment.
By default, only lecturers can rate forum posts.
To learn how to add a Forum, refer to How to set up a Forum.
To enable ratings:
The options available to you are:
If ‘No ratings’ is selected the activity will not appear in the Gradebook. If you are using your Forum for the purposes of communicating with your students, it is advised that you select 'No ratings' from the options provided.
If you choose a rating then you will be asked to select a scale. Point grading allows you to enter the maximum grade available, while scales are used by units, for example the ACUcom competency scales.
