Missing/Late Work Reminder
Students, Parents, and Guardians,
Many people have asked about the "missing" assignments in the grade book. This simply means the assignment was not turned in by the time I entered the grade in PowerSchool. If a student submits and assignment after the "missing" was entered, the "missing" will stay there until their assignment is graded.
I grade all of the current and on-time assignments before I grade the late work. I understand that this can be confusing and frustrating for you, but I appreciate your patience as I give every student the same amount of fair feedback on each assignment.
The nice thing is that you KNOW the overall grade will be much higher once the student has filled out the Missing/Late Work Form.
If you are wondering whether or not your child has actually submitted an assignment, you can check through their Schoology! Your children access this on a daily basis so they can help you! Once you are on Schoology and in my class' tab, you just follow these simple steps:
1. Click on the book or story the assignment is connected to.
2. Click on the assignment.
3. On the top middle to right side you will a tab that says "Submissions." Click on that.
4. If your student has submitted, it will show their submission listed along with the time and date that they submitted it.
5. If your student has not submitted, it will say something like, "You have no submissions for this assignment." in gray writing.
If your student has submitted this AND filled out the Missing/Late Work form, please know that the grade will change, but missing and late work is not the priority. Please feel free to email me any questions you have, especially if the assignment has been submitted for 2+ weeks. I will work with your student on finding out why the grade may not have been updated.
