Last fall I had a student who did not show up for his team presentation. In my 26 years of teaching at the college level, I had never had this happen before and was unsure as to what grade to give the student. I blogged on the situation here.
This week I had two members of a team of three not show up. The team was to present two weeks ago but the same two students had excuses the day of the presentation (one was sick and the other was in a minor car accident on the way to class). Neither student called to tell me but instead text messaged the attending student. I gave the team a two week extension. However, on Monday both students did not show again. As it was the last day of class before the final, the student who did attend had to make the entire presentation by herself. The rest of the class was very supportive and she did an excellent job.
I am curious as to what these two students are thinking. They have still not contacted me or their team mate with an excuse or apology. The presentation is worth 20 percent of their grade.
