Late Work/Make-up Work Procedures

As we move closer to going paperless, more and more assignments are being created and graded online. There are specific steps that students need to follow in order to make sure that an assignment is scored for late/makeup points.  My email inbox is my "digital homework basket".   After an assignment has been graded, that assignment is not revisited unless I receive an email from a student asking me to review their assignment for late/makeup points.

Below are the directions that students must follow when turning in a digital assignment for late/makeup points.

Late/Absent Work Information

Late/Absent Google Docs/Sheets/Slides Assignments

1.  Open the document/sheet/slide that you want me to grade.

2.  Click on “File” and choose “Email collaborators...”

3.  In the message box, include the following information:  

---->  The number of days you were absent, include the dates  (if you are turning something in for late points, skip this step)

---->  What you would like me to do with your assignment (say something like, “I finished this assignment.  Could you grade it, please?”).

4.  If I do not respond to your email within 24 hours (one day), send me another email.


Missing scores in grade book

1.  Send me an email including the following information:

        ----> The name of the assignment(s)/test(s) that you have completed

        ----> What you would like me to do about it (if you have come in to make up a test, but you DO NOT have a score in the grade book, say something like, “I made up this test but there is no score for it in the grade book.  Could you grade it, please?”).

2.  If I do not respond to your email within 24 hours (one day), send me another email.

If these steps are not followed, it is difficult for me to know that I need to re-grade your assignment.  Please follow these steps, as this is the quickest and easiest way for me to get your assignment entered into the grade book.  If you have any questions, please send me an email.
