The absent lozenge

So whilst Miss Leutgeb was amusing herself colouring in rectangles on the MS1 form , which is where you record coursework marks before posting huge parcels to the exam board, Anne Maguire RIP was stabbed fatally in a Catholic school in Leeds.

I'm not English which is perhaps why I don't understand your post. What does it mean?

The rectangles on optems forms are called lozenges.

The absent lozenge is the one you shade if a candidate has submitted no work to be marked, as opposed to scored zero.

I was contrasting the routine task I was performing as a teacher on Monday with the murder of Ann Maguire in Leeds; a fifteen year old boy will appear in court charged with the crime this morning.
