Hi. In the Fall we are switching from our current system (Angel) to Blackboard. I'm doing an online course right now, and have explored the Blackboard environment, but I can't find an answer to this question. How can I create a discussion or forum (I'm not yet clear about terminology) that automatically grades based on certain criteria? For example, when a student posts her answer to the discussion question she earns 60% of the grade. Then when she responds to two other students she receives an additional 20% for each.


I am able to do this in our current system, and it is important that I can do it here. Thanks in advance.
