This product is intended to help students keep track of their own missing work. It is a great tool to use in setting goals and in conferencing with both students and parents. It is nice to see, in the students own words, why assignments are not getting completed. I teach over 100 middle school students and have them fill this in every time they are missing an assignment. I then email or send home a copy each time the student misses 4 or more assignments. I also use it as a reward for students who miss no assignments. It is a great management tool when teaching large numbers of students.
