I have twenty-three students (one has already failed on absences alone, because she's SHOWN UP ONE TIME in the first FOUR WEEKS). I have had one student ask for an extension (which I've granted).
I have, in front of me on my desk, eleven papers, with four more indicating that they'll email it to me by midnight, tonight.
That leaves seven out. Seven possible zeroes.
And this is an otherwise excellent class.
Oh, well. If they don't turn in papers, it's no skin off my nose, and fewer papers I have to grade.
