Jennifer, The way I check homework is on a random basis without warning. I tell the students I will check any assignment at any time. They must have all the assignments done. The reasoning behind this is it gives them the cushion that students sometimes need, but it does not let them off the hook. I then give them a grade either 100 or 0 (either they have it or they don't ) This makes up a homework grade that is 10% of their grade. I have found that it works well to keep the students doing their homework. I usually check about 4 times a quarter. Most of the students always get a 100%. -Tom, for the T2T service
