If you have ever struggled to keep track of work that is turned in after the original due date because of absences or because a student has redone the work to improve their skills, this simple to use log is for you. After struggling with keeping track of who turned in what and when, this log saved my sanity and streamlined my grading process by putting responsibility back on the students.
Simply place the log in a common area of your classroom (I post mine on a clipboard that hangs on the wall with a pencil attached to it) and place a turn in bin near it specifically for absent and redo work. When a student needs to submit this work, paper or electronic, they fill out a line on the absent and redo work log and either submit the work electronically or put their paper in the absent and redo work basket. If a student doesn't log the work, it doesn't go in to the grade book. Simple as that. Go through once a week, or whenever works for you, and cross of the work on the log as you enter it into the grade book. Now you don't have to keep track of who turned work in when and whether or not you graded it! So easy!
Use this in tandem with my Late Work Log to differentiate between work that is turned in late because it wasn't complete on time and work that is turned in because of an absence or a desire to redo their work.
