Marks given for i) Representing and ii) Speaking. We have exhausted all student presentations. We are now waiting on students who have not yet produced their finished product for marking.

Parents/Guardians,
The norm for me is once I correct an assignment for the entire class a mark of 0% will be in place should the evaluation be missing or not handed in. The mark (0%) acts as a placeholder until the assignment gets submitted. By the end of term 1 should the assignment not be submitted the mark of 0% will remain unchanged. If I did not put the 0% in the mark would show as much higher. This way, parents/guardians do not see a pseudo (inflated) mark and can ensure the work gets completed.
