Students love it and parents love it! The Practice Tracker allows students to keep track of all of their assignments for a unit, and has a very clear grading system. Students have told me how much the Practice Tracker has helped to keep them organized and accountable for finishing their homework assignments, and parents love it since they can see exactly what needs to be done each night.
How I use it: Each morning my students work on a warm-up problem as they enter the class. During this time, I circulate around the room and stamp off their assignment from the previous day on the Practice Tracker. At the end of each class, we then update the Practice Tracker with the new night's assignment.
How others use it: I've given this out to several of my colleagues to try (they also love it!), and they use it a bit differently. They do weekly quizzes, and wait to check off a week's worth of homework during the quiz. This works well with the older students.
The Practice Tracker is due at the end of the unit, which is typically marked by a unit test. After student's finish their test, they tally up their Practice Tracker and put their total on the back.
Note: Since each unit lasts a varying length, you might not use all of the weeks on a Practice Tracker. Some units last two weeks, some three, some four. Whenever the unit is over, the Practice Tracker gets tallied up and turned in. The next day, a new one is given out.
If you ever have an issue, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me a chance to fix it before leaving a review! I always love having happy customers.
