EPQ Massive dilemma - do you think teachers will check google docs revision history? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Okay, ill set the scene. We are doing the AQA EPQ. We have a single supervisor who know very little about the epq (new guy, joined last year)

    We are currently filling in the production logs on google drive, and the in the teacher comments table, he is adding his bits too on google drive. However, I am in a massive dilemma.

    He wrote about 5 words in each column of a table for mine, whereas everyone elses in my class, he wrote about 2 or 3 lines of what was good about the epq, and didn't say that anything could be improved as it was good.

    In the positive comments bit of mine, he initially wrote 5 words, and wrote 3 words in the bit that was negative comments. I asked him to add more detail like everyone elses, and he added way more about what was good, and more stuff that was bad about my plan. However, he didn't write anything negative about anyone elses plans in that box on theirs, he only wrote that they should all be good (mine is definitely one of the best ones so far, and it is not the only one who should have negative comments).

    I feel like his comments will bring my mark down slightly when he moderates it, and I disagree with the comments he put. Nobody else has anything negative in theirs, only I do since I asked him to add more detail.

    If I delete the negative bit he put, so it is back how it was originally, do you think he will check the revision history on google docs when the EPQ is submitted, and see that I deleted his comments? I'm not sure if they will mark them on google docs or print them off, but do you think they will check the revision history on the google document (it shows that I deleted his comment - it has a line through it if I delete it)? I am thinking that even if they do check it, if I spam loads of edits on it at random times then it will make the revision list so full it will be hard to see his edit with negative comments, and then he will think that it didn't save his negative comments (he thought that before when i asked him to add more, he thought he had submitted more and it hadnt saved)

    Personally I would go for it. If he's new to EPQ he's unlikely to check it - my (experienced) teacher for EPQ didn't even check my log before sending it off.
