Yeah, I know. We all like to say that we never accept late work from students. But the truth is that reality frequently gets in the way of even our loftiest ideals. That said, I believe it is important to hold students accountable when they turn in work after deadline. This form allows them to explain why they are late with their work. It also doubles as a Review Request form. Students can also use this form to request a review or ask follow up questions about graded work. It allows me to track submissions of each kind, and the form itself provides a paper trail that can be useful in a variety of contexts.
The form is designed to fit on a half-page.
