Theory

Even though the general layout and organization of A+ Student Organizer is very logical, I have decided to write a post describing the theory behind why the app is setup in the way it is. Hopefully, once you understand the why behind the way in which this app is set up, you will be better able to use it to organize your student life.

To begin, take a look at the following illustration:


This illustration represents an overview of the design for A+ Student Organizer. At the highest level you have your school or university which you attend. Your attendance at your school or university is divided up into various terms, semesters, quarters, etc. Within each of these terms you will have a number of courses, and within each of these courses you will have various tests, assignments, projects, and quizzes which will make up your grade. And lastly, to complete each of these assignments you must do certain specific things.

A+ Student Organizer arranges these into 4 primary views which combine all of the information for the category. There is a term view for all of the terms you will attend including your GPA. A courses view for all of the the courses and the grade you have earned in the course. A grades view for all of the assignments, test, projects and quizzes in the order in which they will be due. And finally a to do list view for all of the specific things you need to do in the order in which you need to complete them.

Hopefully this explanation helps you out. As always please let us know if there is anything we can do to make organizing this information any easier.
