Abstract

Although student interaction and engagement in online conference discussions is a required component of many online courses, instructors often find it difficult to determine whether or not students are adequately and meaningfully engaged in online discussion activities. Instructors in a web-based education degree program offered by the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) developed a conference participation rubric to serve two roles: (1) to encourage greater student participation in online course conferences, and (2) to assess and grade performance in these activities. This paper reports on the instrument developed for this purpose and discusses faculty and student reactions on its usefulness in the program's online courses.
