I am marking some Year 10 montage work that was expected to be completed by Friday 7 March. By completion I mean questions answered, printed out (there is a reason for this) and uploaded into students Google drives.
32% of students neither printed nor loaded their documents, hence could not be marked. Around 40% of the class managed to follow the instructions perfectly. 60% could not or did not! I suspect my instructions were too complex.
Looking deeper into the data I note that only 20% Maori students work was either printed out or uploaded. This represents 50% of the work not handed in. This is disturbing and clearly I am doing something wrong. Finding out what I am doing wrong and what to do about it is the next challenge. I will likely start by just asking the students concerned….
