If you are wishing to grade a Flipgrid discussion like you would a regular discussion board, you do have some limitations. Unlike Blackboard, Flipgrid does not collect all of a student's posts onto one screen for you to review and grade. Rather, you would have to manually search for and note where students' made a reply posts. If it is necessary and applicable in your classroom to grade both their initial post and replies, you could have each student post to a discussion board entitled "Flipgrid Replies" with the name(s) of the students they replied to during the Flipgrid discussion.
