Should one conclude that there is no merit in grading of forum entries?
It seems to be automatic without regard to the content.
If this is so, them why the "Rate This" option in the posts?
I have use the forum only once for grading points and thought it was peculiar in what I was seeing but did not have the time to check it out so I prevented it from affecting grades.
I guess I will have to rethink my choice of fora.
