Limited Capacity filling up

Scored Discussions provide a model for evaluating student participation in structured classroom discussions.  They are also a form of alternative assessment and can be used to facilitate a wide range of learning outcomes while, at the same time, reducing the number of papers a teacher needs to grade.  Scored Discussions can be used in any content area and are applicable for grades K-12.
