Do you accept late work from your students?
Here is a very recent Facebook Post from a former professor of mine:
“Cue that point in the semester where students who neglected to hand in assignments for the past 13.5 weeks want to know what they can do in the next 10 days to get an A. 🙄”
So what do you think? Should a student turn in all assignments on time, teaching them a valuable lesson of deadlines? Or should they be able to turn assignments in late so they can show mastery in the subject?
Is work rushed and not as polished if hard deadlines are kept? Are students complacent if they don’t have deadlines?
I want to know what you think. Please take part in this poll, and in the comment section, let me know why you gave your answer (and give an example if you have one).
I’m looking forward to seeing your response!
