I have a great system for collecting papers. This applies to the traditional classroom when the desks are in rows. The students must always put their paper on top of the person's paper behind them. After each row's papers are passed up to the first desk, the person sitting in the first desk on the last row passes all of his/her row's papers to the first person on the row beside him/her. That person places all of his/her row's papers on top of the last row's papers. This continues until all papers are collected and passed to the person on the first row. That person places his/her row's papers on top of the stack. This way when the teacher returns the papers they will be in the exact order as they were collected. This saves a lot of time.
