In the past, I have had trouble keeping track of students and their make-up tests or quizzes. This semester, I created a Sign-Up to Make-Up clipboard. My students must sign the clip board with their name, class period, test or quiz to make up, and date they will make up the assignment. There is a column that requires my initials/signature when they come to make up the assignment which helps me remember when to wait for a student (or make sure I'm there early). The sign-up sheet also makes them responsible for their work. Then, if a student does not come to make up the test/quiz, I have a record that can show the parent where they signed up and where I did not sign for completion. So far, it's worked very well. The students have learned quickly to go to the make-up clip board as soon as they return from an absence.
