That may not work, as one time I had to do an entire project on my own because my group members all bailed at the last minute making me do their work. When we turned it in, I got marked down for the way I presented, being too "flamboyant" while they all read off the project. Afterwards I tried telling my teacher that I did the work, but he said that I wasn't being graded on the project itself, but the way I acted. I got a lower grade than them in the end and that may happen to OP as well if he speaks up, I'm afraid that may be the case as well.
#47 Exactly what kind on class was it? I would talk to the professor. I had a group project that was suppose to be out end of class assignment. Of the 4 others, 2 helped me quite a bit, one gave me the minimum of what I asked and the last gave me one paragraph of hand written notes from a video that was watched in class. They were late to the presentation (to buy cookies and juice because you know, important). As I was stuck being group leader, I had to finish what they didn't. I also made them read out their part of what they was suppose to give me during the presentation. I had a chat with the professor, who I had a good relationship with, and explained my difficulties. I also mentioned while we were talking, that this person told me on the first day of class they were only taking it for the "easy A". My prof accidentally said, "Guess that's why they're making a D then." They're not suppose to do that of course but I never said anything.
What class was this for? If it was public speaking than I understand. Otherwise, go to an administrator and give a formal complaint about the teacher. At my college, things only get changed if the student goes to an admin. Teachers sweep it under the rug, we cannot.
This is where you point out when handing over the work, that the rest of the group did no work at all and that you did all of it. That way if its school only you get a grade, if work then they get written up/you get a bonus.
My concern would be , is it an online project or written. If written only putting your name on it will work. If online, they will have access and can edit it to add their names. And if they are this bad, what is to stop them removing op's name in retaliation. Just be careful about it.
Well you can either let them get away with it, or you could submit a detailed project report on the healing properties of unicorn feces with illustrations and flow charts and watch them all admit they didn't do anything before submitting your actual project.
Don't tell the teacher but put ' A project by (your name)'. Then you can tell the teacher without being a narc.
