Over the past six or eight months, I have been working on a small pet project of mine. Progress was slow but with each iteration grew into something increasingly useful. It’s by no means ground breaking but this simple spread sheet that I had built has and is a handy tool to have on hand.
I present to you: Marks Calculator!
In a nutshell, this spread sheet has been written to allow a student to plot their assessment marks out and gauge approximately where they stand. It’s handy for those who have course requirements like a minimum grade point average (although Marks Calculator doesn’t include this functionality, yet…) and to calculate how well they need to perform for future assessable material. It’s also nice to be able to glance at a single document with all of your marks once in a while: either for motivation, keeping an eye on things or so that it would negate rooting around looking for past assignments probably long lost amongst clutter.
Marks Calculator is explained in more detail in the Readme document included. For now, it’s a simple project but hopefully a useful one, and one that I wish to continue for the foreseeable future.
Alright. So you want a look, eh? I’ve written Marks Calculator in Excel 2010 so it should be compatible with Excel 2007 but might not be compatible with older versions of Excel. This is something to be aware of.
