If your campus has the enterprise license of Blackboard 9.0 or 9.1, not the basic license, but the enterprise license, there is an option available to you that you can choose to turn on or off that will allow users to rate other student's posts on a one to five star system. There is no such thing unfortunately as a zero star. You have to rate it between one and five stars. This is an option that you choose when you create the forum.
So I've already created the forum. If I clicked on Create Forum, I could create a new one, but in this case I'm going to edit my existing forum, my Weekly Class Discussions. I am going to turn to Edit here. I've clicked the button with the two downward-facing chevrons. I'm going to scroll down and I have the option of allowing members to rate post. I want to turn that on. In fact I want to turn Force Moderation off. We talked about that in last movie. But I am going to Allow Members to Rate Posts. How does that look like? Well, let me get in here and I'll show you.
So I've turned this on. I'm going to get into my forum. I am going to get into the thread. I see that I now have four posts here and I have the ability here to change the rating, but nothing's happening. I'm clicking on the stars and well, it turns out you can't rate yourself. You can only rate other people's posts, again from one to five stars. So let's actually go to the next post and now I've got your rating and I'm just holding my mouse over this and I'm going to give them a five star.
Now what's going to happen is it's going to take my rating plus a whole bunch of other people's ratings in this course and give me my rating and then the overall rating. Since I'm the first person to grade this, he gets a five star. I go to the next one. That's the post from me. I can't actually rate that. This is him. I'm actually going to rate this as a two. And I'm going through basically post -by-post and adding my stars to it. Now, literally is all it is. It's a way for you to see as an instructor what the other students think of other student's posts.
So this is an option built into the enterprise version of Blackboard 9. If your campus has the basic license of Blackboard 9 or 9.1, you're not going to be able to see this, but you can in the enterprise nersion of Blackboard 9 or 9.1, you can choose edit for a particular forum and turn the ability for users to rate posts on or off. If it's on, students will have the ability to rate the posts from one to five stars.
