Assignment Check Area

Make sure to address the items below and in the grading rubric before turning in your assignments.

Assignment Specific Grading Items

  1. Posts should be about 2-3 paragraphs in length.
  2. Provide a thoughtful and comprehensive response to each of the questions.
  3. Please see grading rubric below for general grading criteria.

Assignment Formatting

  1. Please ensure your post is free of spelling/grammar/punctuation errors.
  2. If you are sharing a story/situation about someone you know (other than classmates) that is sensitive in nature, please avoid sharing their real name or other personally identifying characteristics. This does not apply for public figures (e.g., elected leaders, media personalities).
  3. Please make sure to use APA style if you cite outside references including course materials (Author last name, year). In such cases, list your full Reference information at the bottom of the post (similar to how you would construct a References list for an academic paper).

Help & Support Recourses

  • To help avoid “losing” your work before you post it, I always recommend first composing your work in a word processor (e.g., Microsoft Word, Google docs) where you can “save” and edit your work prior to posting it for the class. Then, when you are ready, copy/paste the content into the online discussion board.
  • For problems with iCollege or your personal computer, please contact the HELP desk ( or 404-413-HELP).
  • Consider using spell check within a word processing program or a tool such as Grammarly to help catch writing errors before submission.
  • See Class Resources – Writing & Research folder for help on APA Style

Critical Analysis (Understanding of Topic)

(10 points)

Writing displays an excellent understanding of the required readings and underlying concepts including correct use of terminology. Integrates lectures, readings, or relevant research, or specific real-life application (work experience, prior coursework, etc.) to support important points.

Writing repeats and summarizes basic, correct information, but does not apply lectures, readings, or relevant research or specific real-life applications.

Writing shows little or no evidence that class lectures and readings were understood. Writings are largely personal opinions or feelings, or “I agree” or “Great idea,” without supporting statements with concepts from the readings, outside resources, relevant research, or specific real-life application.

Writing lacks evidence of critical analysis, and poor use of supportive evidence.

Participation in the Learning Community

(15 points)

Posts actively stimulate and sustain further discussion by building on peers’ responses including;- building a focused argument, – asking a new related question, making an oppositional statement supported by personal experience related research.

Posts contribute to ongoing conversations as evidenced by – making agreeing statements with few or no references to relevant research.

Posts do not contribute to ongoing conversations. Replies to other students was missing – if at least two replies were required, only one was presented or the replies you gave contained little substance.
