21 Assignments in 12 Minutes

Kid who has not done anything the whole first grading period turned in 21 assignments in just under 12 minutes today. I only opened one, and it was blank. Anyone want to take bets on the completion status of the other ones?

Nope, that’s a sucker’s bet. At least you won’t have to take a ton of time grading them.

I will admit I don't understand the whole submitting assignments, but I don't understand why student would do something so stupid. Is it possible that his assignment is there, on-line completed?

A mom emailed me frustrated that she didn't know why they were getting calls that her kid was failing. I sent her the Pdfs of his grade reports. Crickets...



About an hour later, my inbox is getting notifications from him turning in work.

Nope. Zero chance.

We have emailed and texted and called. There was even a home visit. He had them convinced he was doing the work.

I have had two others who regularly submit work just to make the “missing” notice disappear.

Then there are some who just can’t seem to tear themselves away from YouTube long enough to get anything done. (I can watch them work on Go Guardian.) More than one parent has said the child spends hours on the computer because we are giving them too much work. Ummm . . . please look at the timeline of what your child was doing. Nobody assigned YouTube marathons.

They’re tired of distance learning, and so am I . . . but we’ve got to get it done. Maybe it will get better once we are hybrid. Some kids just need someone on them all the time to get any work done.

Ugh.

I have a student for every assignment turned in this one sentence “I am working on this assignment”. Still haven’t seen one completed assignment.

I have a few students on my caseload that have done this. I got a mass amount of emails yesterday from one student. Most of them blank turned in assignments. Do they really think I won't check and return the assignment?

I teach 2nd grade, and have a few students who have turned in NO work. I've called parents, I've had Zoom meeting with parents where I've shared my screen to show them where they can find their child's assignments, I've sent text messages. But yet I still have parents who believe their child when the child says they have no work to do. Ugh! Can we please just get back to normal??????

I have some that do the same. And of course, their parents believe them, because their child would never lie. Yeah, right. Every child born in this world lies - some more than others - but they all do!

The comment I wrote on one student's work, "You know, I do look at what you submit!"

Google Classroom "Turn In"

Students can make it look like they've done something (at least to their parents who don't know any better). I've been over that with parents. "Turn In" doesn't guarantee that something was actually done.

OMG. We're using Canvas and I'm allowed to give feedback. Some of them turn in work (intentionally or unintentionally) that is blank. So I mark the assignment as 0 out of 10 or whatever and mention that they have submitted a blank assignment.
One student messaged me and asked why they'd gotten 0 out of 10.
I asked if she'd seen the feedback I'd given.
She said yes and asked again why she'd' gotten 0 out of 10.
I pointed out she'd turned in a piece of paper that was blank essentially...it was the same as the one I'd given her.
She said, "I don't understand."
I emailed her the original assignment. Pointed out that there were pictures of atoms and molecules at the top of the page. The assignment was to drag the pictures and drop them into the correct box. When completed, all the pictures should be at the bottom in one of the boxes. The assignment she submitted had all of the pictures at the top just like my original.
I still have no idea if she understood or not.

I know a lot of dishonesty is going on during these times, but is it possible that the work was gradually being done and saved and then all turned in at the same time? Though I think you said that you can see their progress so maybe that isn’t possible.

I taught 4th grade when Covid first entered our lives. I had some experience with the things you all are saying here and i really struggled dealing with it. I don't know how you're doing it now. I'm stressed just reading these posts.
I teach 1st grade now and it's much easier to get the kids to complete most of their work. Great big hugs to all of you!!!!

kids try anything to make it look like they did the work without actually doing it. Not much different from the kid I caught years ago who took someone else’s math paper out of the ‘turn in’ box, erase the name, and write her own name on! Yup. Kids lie.
