    Discussion Forums Rating Setting

    Forum ratings allow users to evaluate posts in a forum.

    A forum rating can be included as part of a student's grade. For example, a teacher might use a custom rating scale in a forum and allow students to rate forum posts.

    How to enable the rating settings:

    1. Go to the forum you want to have the Rating Settings enabled, click on the forum administration, and then "Locally assigned roles"

    2. Locate "Student Ratings" at the bottom and click on it:

    3. Select all the students and click on "add"

    4. Go to the forum administration settings, in the rating options, change from "No Rating" to "average of ratings"
