I had a girl who was out of class on 12/20 and 12/21. She was back in class after break on 01/02 (the first day back). On 01/02 (The day after break), I reviewed the material taught on 12/18-12/21 (although 12/21 was more or less a "fun" day before break). On 01/03, we learned some new stuff. Yesterday, 01/04, I gave a quiz on the stuff from 12/18-12/21 and 01/02-01/03. The girl came up to me at the beginning of class immediately before the quiz, and said "Do I need to take this today? I'm not ready." I told her that, yes, she needed to take it. She only missed 2 days before break, and was there for the review and all of the other lessons. I may have given her an extra day or may have had some sympathy for her if she approached the day before, or if she came in for extra help (I am in early every morning and after school--and all the students know this. I also volunteer my prep period by appointment if absolutely necessary to help students on study halls). In addition, she didn't complete the review sheet or the HW sheet. She just assumed because I'm nice that I would not make her take it that day, but she assumed wrong. The girl took the quiz and got around 30%. I am trying to teach them to be responsible. Would you have made her take it? Should I feel bad?
