D2L: Rating Discussions

VERSION: 10.3 AND HIGHER

Discussions forums are collaborative areas to post, read and reply to threads on different topics. As students participate in discussions and contribute posts, it is possible to enable a rating scheme that allows discussion posts to be rated by using stars or by up and down voting. When using rating schemes, instructors should set up rating schemes on a per-topic basis.
