“It’s a part of my grading system,” Mrs. Monk continues. “I collect every assignment, score it, and record the scores.”

“I spot check them,” Mr. Peet adds.  “They know it may or may not be collected, and I try to avoid falling into a pattern.  I grade it and record the grades when I do collect it.”
