Grade Possibilities

Grade Possibilities


Whip out your Android whenever you get a graded assignment back and let the app run its calculations to figure out the lowest grade you need on EACH remaining assignment to reach or maintain your target score!


Alright, so you bombed that last exam. You know from your syllabus that you have two exams, three quizzes, and five homework assignments left. The problem is that exams are worth 70% of your grade, quizzes are worth 20%, and homework is worth 10%. Can you still make that A at the end of the semester?

This app will tell you what, as a student, I have always wanted to know as I got back some of my grades. Simply type in your class' grading scheme with all anticipated assignments (your syllabus usually tells you that you will have x amount of tests and whatnot).

Note: Future assignments that do not have grades yet should be kept "blank."

Features:
- Able to save multiple classes.
- Supports weighted average calculation.
- Supports classes with summated point schemes.
- Save grading schemes as templates! Template files can be given to friends so that they do not have to create the class themselves.
- Templates can be edited as text files for quick corrections.

Planned Features:
- Grade-dropping
- Add or subtract points from final average
- Specify target point amount OR percent for sum-based classes

I have created this app in hopes that it will be useful for students like me. This app will ALWAYS be free and I strongly value any community input to improve it as soon as possible. If you would like to see features, have trouble, or have anything at all to say about this, please provide feedback... I'll listen!

Recent changes:
Version 1.1 includes a few usability and UI tweaks. A bug fixing a crash was also fixed.

Text should now be easier to manipulate as the majority of "preset" text has been replaced with "hint" text, meaning you do not have to clear the text before typing what you want.

This version is just an in-between... the next version is coming soon with added functionality!

Better than others I've been looking like crazy for an app that can track my different grades throughout the semester. And let me tell you the apps on the andriod market leave a lot to be desired. This is the BEST I have found yet. My only complaint is that I wish I could store different semesters and also have a GPA calculator? But those aren't that necessary considering that I can look at my transcript. Overall a great grade tracker and really helpful for calculating what I need to get on assignments!

Been waiting for something like this for a while! Being a college student, I've wanted to calculate my current grade at various points throughout the semester to monitor my progress. Some classes were easy, having only exams that were weighted evenly. Other classes had exams, quizzes, and homework. Attempting to calculate my grade for such a class always resulted in something wonky, and I usually didn't try more than once. This app takes all the work out of having to do such calculations yourself and throws in a bit of humor. I haven't used it very extensively, but it's a pretty straightforward and simple app, anyway, so I doubt that I'll come across problems in further use. Like a previous reviewer suggested, having the dummy text automatically selected for deletion would be nice, but I see that's already planned for a future update. I'd ask for "Neuroscience" to be added as its own class since it's its own major at my college, but since it's not a common subject at most colleges, I won't push for it. But it'd be nice. ;)
