Scenario 2: Past Sins

You receive an email from a student who says she has an incomplete from a previous semester.

a. tell her to contact the professor
b. tell her to meet you in your office hours and bring the incomplete form with her

c. tell her to ask the TA from the previous semester – it’s their job to take care of incompletes
d. tell her to show up at the final exam during the current semester

correct answer: b. The incomplete form has information regarding how much work is the student supposed to do in order to complete the grade (final exam only, or also some other type of work) as well as the weight of this partial work in calculating the grade. Only after you consult the incomplete form you will be able to assess what is the correct route to take.
