l – you completed it late; the number indicates the number of weeks late
p – you did it partially; you did it poorly; or you and I are discussing it but you haven’t actually done it yet
n – you didn’t do it when it was due. n turns into p or l when you do the assignment.

Absences is the number of class sessions that you missed, regardless of the reason.
