[LON-CAPA-users] track student responses to Discussion Board?

In the header (or footer) for each table listing the discussions in a LON-CAPA discussion board there is a link: "Other Views ...".  If you click that link, and then check the "Show a list of current posters" checkbox in the pop-up window, and push "Save changes", a new pop-up window will be displayed with a table listing the names of posters and how many posts they have made.  You could copy and paste the text from that window into a text editor, save as a .txt file, and import into a spreadsheet (as a tab-delimited or space-delimited file).

I can also add your e-mail address as a CC to a couple of existing LON-CAPA enhancement request: 2174 and 2642 (e.g., bugs.loncapa.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2642 ), if you would like to be notified when work is done on those  feature requests.

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone is healthy.

Does anyone know if there is a feature that summarizes which students in a class have posted to a dedicated discussion board? And possibly how many times the students posted to the board? I want to assign credit for participation. For a class with 20-30 students, that can be done manually without too much trouble, but for larger classes. an automated method would be helpful. I could use an essay type problem, but I want the students to discuss/share openly (even if anonymously).
