In the UK, we place a tick (✓) next to the names of those present. In France you put a cross. My ticks confused the school where I first worked. Now, the habit of putting a cross for those present has confused me. I don’t know if my students have a cross because they were at my class or if they couldn’t come! What do I put if they are absent?
