Waht is the word to describe a person who makes carelessly tiny mistakes all the time?

For example:

I have a p.t job, which is to correct kids' homework.

And sometimes I check them wrong just because I accidently missed out a word or something .

But I do know the answer.

And I forget tiny things often, or something like that.

How would you put that in word??

Please give me "noun, adj., and adv"

THANKS!!

I can only think of blunder.
Hi,

You don't want to just say 'careless'?

Hi, when I 'forget tiny things often' or 'make tiny mistakes' I usually define myself as an 'absent-minded'girl, but I don't know if it's right. What do you think, Clive? Emotion: smile
Hi,

'Absent-minded' is a blame-free word, while 'careless' suggests fault.

So, I'm never careless, but sometimes I'm absent-minded. Emotion: wink

Hi, thaks for all of your replies!!

It's not I don't want to use "careless".

It's that ..." careless " ,to me ,sounds like I don't really care , so I make mistakes.

Am I right?
