|In Moodle, Discussion Forums are gradable similarly to assignments. When creating a Discussion Forum that will be graded, check Allow posts to be rated during its creation. Use the Grade drop-down menu to select the grading scale you wish to use.
Note: If you are using a weighted gradebook, graded activities will only be weighted equally if the Grade drop-down is the same for all activities contained within that category. That is, the number of possible points per assignment should be equal for every activity in the category.
Note: Due to the manner in which Moodle averages forum ratings, we highly suggest that you only rate one post per student per forum. This means grading a student only once for each forum when forum posting has ceased. A student’s total forum grade should be assigned to either their first or last forum posting.
Note: Only instructors can grade forum posts. Students will not be able to grade other students’ posts, and they will only be able to see their own ratings.
