Grading Made Easier: Utilizing D2L Rubrics to Assess Discussions

Summer 2020


More Details

When MTSU transitioned to Remote classes, you probably started using Discussion Boards in your courses to create engagement and supplement lectures. Now you have to assess those discussions. This can seem like a labor-intensive task, but the rubric tool in D2L can help. This Zoom workshop, facilitated by an MTSU Online Instructional Designer, will walk you through creating and using rubrics to accelerate your assessment without minimizing your valuable feedback. A sample discussion rubric will be shared as well as other tips and tricks for this important component in your Remote or Online courses.


You will receive a Zoom meeting link the day before the scheduled workshop.

Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free so send your suggestions to Dr. Sheila Otto.
