Frequently Asked Questions:

How many questions do I have to answer each lesson?

  • You will answer two different questions each lesson from the list provided.

Do I post my responses in the same post?

  • No, you need to respond to each question in a separate post.

Can I respond to other students?

How many points is each response worth?

  • Each response can earn up to 10 points. Click here to see how the discussion posts are graded.

What can I do to ensure I earn 10 points on every post?

  • It is pretty simple. Always respond with at least three sentences, use proper spelling and grammar, show original thought and answer the question directly and specifically. Most importantly, support your opinions with facts and always tell me why and how not just when and where.
