Assignment Calculator

As we all know chunking up assignments is a way to successfully complete research papers.

Here is a link to an open source tool developed by the University of Minnesota that allows students to put in the current day and then the date an assignment is due and get a 12 step schedule for completing tasks with links to your institution's resources (you can modify the Assignment Calculator). Email alerts can also be set up. Not only have students found the calculator to be a great time management tool, but many faculty members have used it for determining due dates in their syllabi for specific tasks related to completing research papers.

At the bottom of the calculator page is the information on how you can download and then modify the Assignment Calculator.
