    Question Can you help me to correct this sentence?

    Hi!
    I know that this sentence is wrong in the part of the verb sit, but i don't know how to correct it. Can you help me?
    If I were the teacher, I would have made them stand up instead of having them sat for this exercise.
    Thanks!
