Question 10.  Are missing assignments listed in Skyward, really missing?
            In most cases, no.  Some teachers like to list the assignment so that students and parent will know that it is going to be counted as a grade.  It may be listed as a future assignment that will be recorded at some point later.  Some teachers wait until the majority of students have completed the assignment before entering it into Skyward - the grading program.  Skyward automatically puts it in as "Missing" if a number is not entered, but it does not necessarily mean that it is missing.  Normally, when an assignment is truly missing, a 0 is then entered.
