I require that my students who have missed assignments complete the current assignment BEFORE they do the make up work. This way they are doing the same work as everyone else in the class. If the student completes the current assignment and has extra time, he can then start on his make up work. If not, they have to come after school or before school to make up work. I have found that this approach minimizes the amount of work that a student does not complete.
