Evaluation of on-line Postings

Evaluation of graded discussion posting is based upon the clarity of expression, application of the course concepts to your experiences, synthesis of course ideas, correct American English grammar, correct American English spelling, and timeliness of submission. You should consider the work you submit to me as clear demonstrations of your knowledge. Your classmates and I are the audience for your postings, so you should write these submissions as clearly and as knowledgeably as possible.

To facilitate these written elements, use the CREER format. CREER is an acronym for Concept, Rule (Definition), Example, and Explanation of Reasoning. This is a style of writing that is often used in social science and legal courses. A student using this style will incorporate the course material and demonstrate her or his understanding of it.

Completion of each discussion posting may worth up to 10 pt each. A posting thatâs evaluated as âexcellentâ across all four CREER Elements (Claim, Rules/definition, Examples, Explanations) would earn 1 pt for claim, 2 pt for Rules/definition, 3 pt for examples and 4 pt for explanations.
