Graded Discussions

A graded discussion is a type of assessment that allows instructors to create and publish a discussion post for you to comment and reply. As a learner, once you achieve the minimum engagement requirements for the graded discussion, it will be considered as completed. The score(s) of the discussion goes to the classroom gradebook along with other assessment types.

Note: Graded Discussion is a whitelabelled term and can vary from site to site. We will be using the term 'Discussion' as the whitelabelled term for the purpose of this documentation.
