Grading Discussion Topics

Grading Discussion Topics 

When creating new topics or troubleshooting why a discussion doesn’t appear in the grade book, the setting to check is the Grade Out Of field. 

While creating or editing a discussion topic one of the fields on the page controls the grading option. The default is to have the topic ungraded. 

To change the setting, click on the Ungraded button to get a block to enter a point value. 

Click the Save and Close or Save button at the bottom of the screen and the discussion topic will be in the grade book.
