The form helps students and teachers keep data and log late or missing work. It can be attached to the assignment when the student turns it in. Students need to explain why they are turning it in late. The teacher can then deduct points for it being late and show why the student lost those points without having to take away class time. This helps to hold them accountable. Teachers can also use this during parent conferences by keeping the top half in a student folder and showing the reasons work is either not done or getting full credit.
