"A great, affordable software to keep track of your grade and assignments."
Version: ClassWork Organizer 1.2
The installation was a breeze. There are 3 tabs on the software: What's Due, Work, Subjects. What's Due shows the assignments due in the future. You can set how far in the future you would like to see the assignments. The Work tab shows all of the assignments you entered in the software. You can sort them by subject, type and status. Subjects tab shows the subjects you entered in the software, room number and the current grade for each subject. This software is not loaded with much more and does exactly what it says. The help file is pretty good though I doubt you will need it. You can add homework assignments, quizzes, reading assignments, tests, and reminders. What I really like about the software is that you can use a drop down list to select the subject when entering a new assignment. You also don't need a title for the assignment and the assignment details show as the titles. This saves time because I never give a title to my assignments. What am I going to name them...Boring, More Boring? I just want to add the assignment as quickly as possible during class and I can do so with this software. The price is also very reasonable.
Typing with the PPC virtual keyboard is annoying and time consuming. You have to check the "complete" button for the software to add the grade of an assignment to your current grade average. Now if you never do the assignment, you will never notice that your current grade is actually lower than what the software is giving you. Even if you don't complete the assignment, you have to check the complete button and put in a 0 as your grade. I want the software to automatically put in a 0 as my grade when I enter an assignment until I complete it and enter the grade I got for it. This way, I know I'm never missing any assignments. Furthermore, though I like the big tabs, the software is not something you would find appealing to look it. There is an image on the What's Due tab page which is low quality and stretched out. Now I think this would have something to do with the VGA screen I am using, but still, it's a con which can be improved easily by the developers. The software doesn't have a calendar view or any reminders for you assignments. It also doesn't work with the PPC task manager to show assignments as Active Tasks on the Today screen. But like I said, the software is simple and to the point. There aren't many extra features. Would I recommend it? It's worth a try.
