To set up grading for a thread
Instead of grading an entire forum, you can grade user's individual threads. This is useful for more detailed responses or participation grades.
The resulting pop-up box lets you choose how often you will be prompted to grade discussion threads. Also, when you select Grade Threads, you will need to start the thread yourself in the forum. Students cannot create their own threads when Grade Threads is selected.
When you create Discussion Board forums, settings you choose will only be set on that particular forum. You can select different settings for each forum you create.
