Discussion Week 3
The Discussion Board is designed to stimulate class dialog that would normally take place in
a face-to-face setting. Participation in the Discussion Board serves as a learning strategy to
help demonstrate your knowledge of the course content.
To earn full weekly discussion credit, students are expected to comment on all prompts posed by
the instructor and provide responses to classmates. Each Discussion Board post will be assessed
using a rubric (under the My Grades menu item). In addition to reviewing the grading criteria in
the rubric, please note the following expectations for Discussion Board posts:
1. Discussion posts must be completed during the week they are assigned. Discussion posts made in
advance of the assigned week will not count toward your grade. If you wish to work ahead, please
compose your responses in a Word document, then post when the week arrives.
2. Each week, you are required to submit a reply to each initial prompt and replies to your peers or
instructors in the Discussion Board. The required posts are as follows:
No later than Wednesday, 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) each week, you must respond to each initial
prompt posted by the instructor. An automatic 10% deduction will be assessed for all late initial
postings. Please note that there may be one or two initial prompts per week, depending on the
course material. It is your responsibility to reply accordingly -AND-
Throughout the week, and no later than the conclusion of each week, you must reply to a minimum
of two (2) peers or instructors, per prompt although replying to more is highly encouraged. Replies
must be made throughout the week to show active participation.
3. Any post made in the Discussion Board must be well-developed.
A well-developed post is meaningful, shows relevance to the topic, and reflects your knowledge
of the material. Well-developed posts demonstrate synthesis of the subject matter, extend the
discussion by building on previous posts, and include proper source citations, when applicable.
Posts limited to "I agree," "Great posting," or "Thank you" will not be assessed as well-developed,
and will therefore not be considered a contribution to the number of required weekly posts.

Prompt 1
Within your community, there has been a large increase in teenage smoking, and community
leaders are developing a plan to decrease the incidence of smoking. To help them, you will:
A) Develop a research question to address the problem.
B) Determine what kind of study should be undertaken.
C) Design a study to decrease the incidence of smoking in teenagers.
Class,
You need to remember what a research question is first… so start by ensuring you understand
what it is and how to develop one. Do a bit of research and determine what a research question is
and what makes a good research question. It should be clear and focused, but yet not something
that can be answered in a few statements of fact. Truly on of the most important parts of the
research process is forming the actual research question. So take time and seek out the best way
to develop this question, and although it is already focused on a particular topic, there is still
room to complete steps A-C in the discussion. What did you find most interesting about the
assignment? Anything new?
