I did my assignment, but my score its lower than I anticipated. Why is that?

First things first, take a look at your professor's expectations for the Packback assignment. 

Here's an example:

"You must post 1 Question and 2 Answers - all with a curiosity score of 50 points or greater - per week. There will be a Sunday 11:59 PM deadline for submissions on dates specified in your syllabus.

Your weekly grade will be determined by participation and curiosity score. The Packback discussion is worth 5 points per week:

  • 2 point per question
  • 1.5 point per response (2 total)
  • Posts that do not meet the 50 curiosity point threshold receive half credit"

Second, take a look at your Participation Report by clicking "Track my own participation" under "My Community Stats":


Here you can see your posting history as well as a breakdown of your weekly participation. Make sure that you've completed the correct amount of posts (questions and responses) required before the deadline, and that you've met the Curiosity Score minimum (if there is one needed). You can see the timestamp and Curiosity Score on the bottom left hand corner of any post.


If you still have questions or need further clarification on your grade, please contact your professor with your concerns.
