So, many students are progressing nicely in their project. They are learning the relevant information and learning well on their own. However, there are a few problems with assessment: 2 students continually miss project days. Thus, when they do come, they spend basically the entire class catching up to the rest of the students and can’t really contribute to any new discussions.
How do I assess this? They aren’t really helping their group, and I am not sure if they are learning the information so I can’t really give them their groups marks. I am thinking of giving an alternate assignment, but hate to have them miss this opportunity.
