The criteria for assessing this discussion is the same as that of the first year entries (Check the criteria).
There are two features that contribute to the quality of this discussion post. 1) First of all, this student shows that she has done her background reading, and that she has been searching for information independently. It demonstrates an enquiring mind, and initiative to learn. Great student attributes! 2) The second quality revealed in this post is the skillful (and constructively positive) acknowledgement and encouragement of other students and their postings that she includes. This is a fine example of a forum post.
