Description of the Assignment

  1. Initial posting: This is defined to be the initial post in which the student responds to the required threaded discussion topic.  The first posting by a student within the required discussion area is considered to be the initial posting and will be evaluated using the rubric criteria.  Scholarship in communication is expected.  Required scholarly source(s) provide specific information that thoroughly address the required topic.  For the initial posting, one scholarly source must be presented.  The scholarly source must be an outside source. The student may use the required course textbook (s), assigned readings and lesson information in the initial post; however, these are not considered outside scholarly sources. The initial posting must occur before Wednesday, 11:59 pm MT.  Initial postings must be at a minimum of 300 words.  References do not apply toward the word count.
  2. Peer responses:  As part of the threaded discussion requirements, the student must provide a substantive response to a peer. Substantive responses pose new ideas, ask questions, and/or generally add to the discussion topic in a meaningful and constructive way. The peer response must occur on a separate day from the initial posting and instructor-post response (see below). This peer response must occur before Sunday, 11:59 pm MT.  This response does not require a scholarly reference unless information is paraphrased and/or direct quotes are used; then, APA guidelines apply.  Peer responses must be a minimum of 150 words. References do not apply toward word count.

 

  1. Instructor response:  The student must respond to an instructor’s follow-up questions (instructor-post response). The instructor’s question may be directed to the student or may be a question directed to another student in the section.  The response must be comprehensive and scholarly in nature.  Instructor responses must be a minimum of 150 words. References do not apply toward word count.  The response to the instructor must occur on a day different from the initial post and a day different from the peer response. Responses to the instructor must occur before Sunday, 11:59 pm MT.

 

Posting Requirements:

  1. The initial posting must be provided before Wednesday, 11:59 pm MT.
  2. The initial posting must have at least one scholarly outside source that is cited within the posting and referenced. Required course textbooks, assigned readings and lesson information are not considered to be outside scholarly sources.
  3. Initial posting must be a minimum of 300 words; peer responses and instructor responses a minimum 150 words.
  4. The peer responses and instructor-post responses must be provided before Sunday, 11:59 pm MT.
  5. All postings are substantive and relate to the graded threaded discussion topic.
  6. Only one small quote (15 words or less) within the entire initial posting is accepted.
  7. Postings must occur on 3 separate days.

Criteria for Content

  • Scholarliness: In this category, the student will conduct a search of the current bibliographic databases and locate valid, relevant, and reliable information for the required topic.  Each reference must be scholarly.
  • Application of Course Knowledge: In this category, the student demonstrates the ability to analyze and apply principles, knowledge, and information learned in the course lesson and outside readings. Information is applied to a real-life professional situation to provide an example of using the information.
  • Participation Requirement: One initial posting, one peer response, and one instructor-post response (for a total of 3 posts for the week) are required on 3 separate days.
  • Participation Deadline: The student must provide a substantive response to the graded threaded discussion topic. This must be posted by Wednesday, 11:59 pm MT of each week. Peer and instructor responses must be posted by Sunday, 11:59 pm MT.

Criteria for Format and Special Instructions

  1. Instructor reserves the right to submit any threaded discussion posting to Turnitin in order to verify the originality.
  2. When journals are used as the outside source of information, it is preferred that the journal be peer reviewed. The Chamberlain online librarian is very helpful in assisting you to find an article related to your topic. If you have questions concerning scholarly sources, please refer to the handout entitled “What is a scholarly source”, located under “Course Resources” tab.
  3. Web sites vary in quality and scholarship. It is the responsibility of the student to determine the scholarly nature of the web site.  If the instructor determines that the site failed to demonstrate scholarship, points maybe deducted.  Students are cautioned to use care regarding .com sites.  Some .com sites are excellent, such as American Heart Association, but others are built by individuals and scholarliness is lacking.  It is recommended that you check with your instructor before using a .com website as a reference.
  4. Only one small quote (15 words or less) within the entire initial posting is acceptable. It is expected that the student will paraphrase the information when presenting information from a scholarly source.  The scholarly source(s) for the paraphrased information must be cited using APA format. Do not include a number of small quotes, even if they are just a few words, as your instructor considers a quote to be a quote no matter its limited size.

*Scholarly source:Per the APA Guidelines in Course Resources, only scholarly sources should be used in assignments and threaded discussions. These include peer-reviewed publications, government reports, or sources written by a professional or scholar in the field. Your textbook and lessons are not considered to be an outside scholarly source. For the discussions, reputable Internet sources such as websites by government agencies (URL ends in .gov) and respected organizations (often ends in .org) can be counted as scholarly sources. The best outside scholarly source to use is a peer-reviewed nursing journal.  You are encouraged to use the Chamberlain library and search one of the available data bases for a peer-reviewed journal article.  The following sources should not be used: Wikipedia, Wikis, or blogs.  These web sites are not considered scholarlyas anyone can add to these. Please be aware that .com websites can vary in scholarship and quality.  For example, American Heart Association is a .com site with scholarship and quality.  It is the responsibility of the student to determine the scholarship and quality of any .com site.  Ask your instructor before using any site that you are unsure of.   If the instructor determines that the site does not demonstrate scholarship or quality, points will be deducted for not using scholarly sources. Current outside scholarly sources are required for the initial posting.  A current source is defined to be 5 years or less.  Instructor permission must be obtained if using a source that is older than 5 years.
