Question

My district uses GradeSpeed PSC, which allows for both "INC"
(incomplete) and "MSG" (missing) as codes for grades. The district does
not allow incompletes to remain at the end of grading period. As a
result, I score all missing assignments as missing, which calculates as
a zero.

Do you see "MSG" and "0" as the same thing in that circumstance?
Should I continue to use "MSG"?

No, use Incomplete and try to get your district to change its policy. If we want to
communicate accurately we have to be able to allow incomplete to remain at the end of a
grading period.
