I screwed up (or my Russian-Mafia-Virus-infected laptop did, but probably me) and have three homework assignment grades missing from my spreadsheet for a student.
Initially I assumed she just didn’t do the assignments, but I found one of the papers, with a low, low score of 10% (she had low attendance so probably wasn’t there when I gave them back) and she sent me a partial photo of another one, from which I could construct a grade with a bit of optimistic extrapolation, with a high, high score of 77%. This leaves me with one missing assignment score. For this set of three assignments I drop the lowest score.
Reconstruction options seem to be
- Grade on what I have, dropping the missing score
- Give her the class average score for the missing score and drop her actual low score.
- Grade her on the best score, reconstructed from the photo, only.
I recognise that all the options are unfair and unsatisfactory, as would be any kind of makeup procedure.
If you don’t vote I might actually have to take a decision, and I hate that.
