after finding papers all over the floor and wasting class time handing out graded work I came up with this system. I keep all graded papers in a file labeled by hour. I do not return eveything: only tests and things that need to be reworked (students can check their grades on-line). If a student says "I handed that in" I give them the file and have them look for their paper. If it is not in there they know they did not turn it in. I clean out the file after every quarter or semester. This has saved me time and headaches. Hope it helps.
