This resource is really helpful to me because i need to manage my time instead of watching tv or playing the xbox and instead of enjoying the fresh air outside. So I really like this resource

lack of time management skills

I am the one who does not know how to manage the time of the studying. When I read one subject, I am always worried about another subject.

Importance of a schedule

I agree it is very inportant to keep a schedule. I keep a pocket calendar and write my work and class schedule in it. I write each day the assignments and the quizzes. I check my calendar everyday and as often as I can.

I want to share my way of manging my time. I'm a finance student and it is not easy at all: lots of homework, presentations and research. Microsoft excel is the best manager with its tables and the ability to add color.

So, basically, it assumes that whatever assignment you're trying to plan for is a research paper and unloads a multi-step process as a recommended route. This seems really unfeasible since there are other assignments that need to get done, never mind the fact that it might just be some work problems, not a full-blown research paper. Looking at this could very well overwhelm someone who is genuinely looking to schedule their time. Not a site I would recommend a student use.

Time Management
Vilma Grava, College Freshman

I manage my time with my calendar. Since I work with the school system I have to hand write everything I do, like for example, all my meetings, home visits, conferences, DPI meetings, webinars,etc. That's how I stay organized.

Good tips and ways to write a great paper

I have always had a hard time writing a good paper, because I never knew how to manage my time and actually would leave it to the last few days or even last night to do it. This type of advice from the website helped me to understand that timing is important, because you really need time to review and to actually write a good paper. It helps to space out your steps in writing the paper, because it gives time to your mind to evaluate and get interesting things to write.

Love It!

I am a new student at UMA and i love the assignment calculator. Since middle school I have always written down my assignment and the due date, but I am tired of sometimes losing my assignment sheet. I love the idea of being able to have the assignment calculator right there with me for whenever i need to double check what needs to be done.

Time Management
Angel Lauver, College Freshman
Ultimate Medical Academy, Florida

I have learned that time management is crucial in your everyday life. I have three sons who are 7, 5, & 4 so having a good time management schedule helps me get through my days with ease. I would hope that new students who are joining the online college experience take time to use the time management tools because it will help guide them through their assignments, reading, tests, & personal life a lot better. I have also found it helps keep me focused on the important things and not fret over the little things as much.

awesome
Sonsecharai, College Freshman
Ultimate Medical Academy, Clearwater, FL

I like this because I am a mother of 4 and time seems to be never on my side. Breaking down the work when planning days ahead is a reliever. I can study for the hour my son sleeps each day and not overwhelm myself thinking I have to do everything at once.

It is very important for me to take some time out the day to study. Studying increases your memory. You get better at what you're doing if you study. Studying consists of quiet time, no distraction or interruptions.

When I start to do something, something else comes up. I just want to have some alone time to study.

Schedule makes you free
Ulises Castillo, College Freshman

I found myself to be in agreement with most of the things mentioned in this handout. Procrastination can be warded off with a schedule, as long as you stick to it. When you finish your work, you can do whatever you want without worrying about work.

I find this tool to be helpful even though me managing my time has got to get much better. This Assignment calculator is a big help and I look forward to using it more often.

I find this very helpful, because I am a busy woman and this will allow me to figure out just how much time I need to schedule in for my school work among other activities I've got going on.

This is so awesome. I never seem to be on the right foot with time management due to being new to online classes , working and taking care on my sister and her daughter. But as I read more on how to study , how to use my time, I am becoming more confident about my road to success .

When I am concentrating on one paper, I am always worried about the other papers that I need to be doing. When I started using the time chart, I can look at it and keep my mind on the paper I am doing. I also can keep on my time schedule.

Great resource

I really enjoyed this tool as because often I have the hardest time starting a project and have anxiety about not knowing how or were to start. but with this site it's nice to have something to go off of.

Paper to write? Overwhelmed?
Sutton Rardin

I find this website to be helpful in the case of writing a paper, since it breaks down a large task into smaller, daily ones. For someone who feels overwhelmed by planning a paper to completion, this website is way to simplify the details.

WOW
Sara, College Sophomore
Lyndon State College, Lyndonville, Vermont

I always have had trouble planning out my assignments and I didn't always know how to structure a time-line to accomplish it. What would always happen is I would jump around the assignment and everything would end up out of place and scattered. I just couldn't properly plan my time! This website is now going to be known as my grade-saver and I have shared the link with both friends and family. Every and any student NEEDS to have the link bookmarked or written down and teachers should give it to their students.

Setting the pace...
Chemeketa Community College, Salem OR

Honestly I am one to put off, only to come up short of time, and taking care of it quickly not retaining all the information that I should have. This demonstrates a great model for pacing ones self in the process of furthering education.

Really pretty great
Thomas Cushman, College Sophomore
Chemeketa Community College, Salem, Oregon

While I'm normally against strict schedules for assignments, as it can take a certain amount of creativity out of the mix, this Assignment Calculator excels at the one thing my strategy lacks: long term projects. It's easy to say that you'll work steadily on a project for weeks or months, but given the opportunity, most people will fizzle and begin to procrastinate within the first week. This helps avoid that trap by setting up easy, achievable, short-term goals.

Kelli Miezio, College Freshman

I really like this concept because I am more of a visual learner who likes to have everything laid out. I think that this would help me in my time management because I would be able to have an over-view of the assignment, and then I can schedule my study and homework time to include getting some aspects of the assignment done. I wouldn't then feel overwhelmed when the the due date grew near, I would feel confident in the quality of the assignment and in my ability to to get it in on time, without rushing it.

Amazing!

I love this tool! It is similar to the way my courses themselves are broken down, so I know exactly what I need to do by when. It turns one looming task in to many achievable mini tasks!

I found this site useful as it shows how to break down your time and put you on the right track to properly manage your time. It also seems to take a larger task and put it into a better perspective that looks less overwhelming.

Keeping the schedule
Richard Henley, College Freshman
Chemeketa Community College, Salem, OR

I find this tool to be extremely useful. I've always had terrible time management due to procrastination. However this tool lays out the entire process for your assignment in black and white. It'll even remind you about your assignment!

good program
Chemeketa Community College, Salem, Oregon

The website provides an assignment calculator that will allow you to type in when the assignment was given and when its due and will make you a detailed instruction list of what to have done by certain times to help you complete your assignment. While this is a very helpful tool for essays it does not seem to apply to all types of homework and would leave you needing to write a rough draft of your math problem, but if it is a reading or writing assignment it sure does seem to do the trick. I will be using this for sure to help with some of my assignments since I need to space out my work better.

time management
Nicole Giesbrecht

When you go this site you are prompted to enter the start date of your assignment and the assignment due date. For instance, if you have a paper due in a writing class and you get the assignment on the first and it is due on 18th you would input those dates into the calculator. The site will then take those dates and give you the best steps to take for you to take in the process of writing your paper. For example, step one understand your assignment and step two pick your topic. Under each of these steps there are also links that take you to sites filled with resources to help you along the process of doing your assignment. i wanted to review this site as soon as i saw it, because i have never been the best writer and i really think that having a step by step layout for me to work with will really help my writing process. I really look forward to being able to use this tool on my future writing assignments.
