  3. Assessments include specific instructions/information on word count/length, number of posts/replies, due dates and amount of credit possible (points), and how to submit.  A rubric may also be included.
  4. Regularly scheduled assignments/projects promote interactions and collaborations: professor-learner, learner-learner, learner-content.
C. Feedback to Students

This item addresses instructor feedback to students.

  1. Frequent and substantive feedback is provided throughout the course. This includes individual feedback on assignments and discussions, but it can also include prepared feedback, rubrics, quizzes, news items, and release conditions.
  2. Comments are provided as feedback in the gradebook. If feedback is given in email, use announcements to notify students that individual feedback is available and where they can find it. This allows accreditors to see evidence that individual feedback was provided.
